Works start on Monday 31 May for three weeks

 

A new road safety project on the A84 in Doune is expected to get underway next week.

The project will involve teams installing new signage on approach to Doune as well as carrying out road surfacing improvements and line marking upgrades. The footway on the north approach to Doune will also benefit from surfacing improvements.

The project is set to begin on Monday 31 May and will take approximately three weeks to complete, subject to weather conditions.

To ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists, temporary traffic lights will be in place for the duration of the works.

Access through the worksite will also be maintained for pedestrians, residents and the local bus service.

Strict physical distancing protocols, in line with Scottish Government COVID-19 guidance, will be in place to protect site personnel and the public for the duration of the project.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative, said: “The improvements to the pedestrian facilities and signage on the A84 in Doune are part of a continuing commitment by BEAR Scotland and Transport Scotland to improve road safety.

“The proposed works are likely to take three weeks to complete and will require the use of traffic management to protect the workforce and road users alike.  We will do all we can to complete the works quickly and will seek to remove the traffic management outwith working hours to minimise disruption however, there may be occasions where this is not possible.

“We thank the local community and road users for their patience in advance while we work on this project. We encourage motorists to plan ahead before setting out by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date travel information as some delays are anticipated due to the location of the works.”
