Works begin on Sunday 28 August for five nights

  • Overnight road closures, 8pm to 7am


On behalf of Transport Scotland, BEAR Scotland will be carrying out surfacing improvements on the A84 between Kildean and Craigforth Roundabouts in Stirling, with works set to get underway on Sunday 28 August.

The surfacing improvements will greatly improve the road for motorists, improving skid resistance and creating a safer and smoother journey for road users.

The project is expected to take five nights to complete, with works taking place between 8pm and 7am each night. All works are anticipated to be completed by 7am on Friday 2 September, subject to weather conditions.

To ensure the safety of roadworkers as well as motorists, the A84 between Kildean and Craigforth Roundabouts will be closed throughout the improvements. Traffic will be diverted via the M9. Alternative arrangements will be put in place for vehicles not permitted to use motorways and access will be provided for pedestrians and cyclists via the existing footway.

All traffic management will be removed outwith working hours; however, a 30mph speed limit will remain in place as traffic will be travelling over a temporary surface.

Consultation has taken place with relevant stakeholders in advance of the resurfacing improvements to ensure awareness of the traffic management arrangements.

Commenting on the improvements, Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative said: “This surfacing project between Kildean and Craigforth Roundabouts will greatly improve the quality and safety of this section of the A84 for road users.

“The traffic management proposed is essential for the safety of roadworkers and road users. We’ve taken steps to limit the overall impact of the project by programming the road closures overnight.

“We thank road users  for their patience in advance and would also encourage them to plan ahead before setting out by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date travel information.”
