Kerse Road Stirling - Road Closure for New Bridge

The A905 Kerse Road will close for six months from April until the end of October 2018 while engineers demolish and replace the road bridge over the railway to the south of Stirling station. The new structure will deliver a significant increase in the width of the carriageway offering the potential for the council to add a third lane in the future to meet Stirling’s growing traffic needs.

The bridge work is part of a wider programme of improvements on the Stirling line ahead of the electrification of the route as part of a Scottish Government investment being delivered by Network Rail. Electrification of central Scotland’s rail network will reduce journey times to Glasgow and Edinburgh, increase capacity on peak services and provide longer, greener trains.

Network Rail have organised a series of series drop-in sessions are detailed below and people are invited to hear more about the project.
