Following the successful completion of the first stage of works, on the A84 in Callander, BEAR Scotland, on behalf of Transport Scotland, are set to undertake the next stage of improvements between Ancaster Square and Leny Feus from Sunday 5 November. The project, valued at £460,000, will resume on Sunday 5 November for a further three weeks. All scheduled work is expected to conclude by Thursday 23 November, depending on weather conditions.
Access to properties will be maintained, but there will be times when access is temporarily restricted as the works progress. These restrictions are necessary to ensure the safety of our workforce and members of the public. When access is restricted, a member of the site team will contact those affected.
Safety barriers will also be in place along the footpaths. Pedestrians and cyclists will be guided safely through the area or shown to a diversion route and might have to wait for a short period. These precautions are again necessary to ensure the safety of both the workforce and the public whilst the works are carried out.
The following traffic management arrangements will be in place:
An updated detailed sequence of the works is provided below:

Ian Stewart, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative, said, “These enhancements to the A84 will replace the worn out road surface and improve the access to footways for pedestrians. Our team will work hard to finish the job safely and quickly, and we thank the local community and road users for their patient.
