£1 MILLION SURFACING IMPROVEMENTS ON A9 AT DUNBLANE BEGIN THURSDAY 11TH JULY

The A9 at Dunblane is set to benefit from a £1 million road surfacing scheme that will deliver improvements to the carriageway.

Amey, on behalf of Transport Scotland, will carry out resurfacing on approximately 1670 metres of the A9 northbound carriageway between Thursday 11th July and Tuesday 16th July.

The improvements will be undertaken between the A820 northbound on slip and south of the B8033 overbridge.

To ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists the essential maintenance will be carried out under a contraflow between 7.30pm on Friday 12th July and 6.30am on Monday 15th July.

Lane closures will be in place from 7.30pm on Thursday 11th July to 7.30pm on Friday 12th July to set up the traffic management.

There will be further lane closures between 6.30am on Monday 15th July and 6.30am on Tuesday 16th July to stand down the contraflow.

The A9 northbound on slip road from the A820 at Stockbridge will be closed during the contraflow.

Traffic from the A820 wishing to access the A9 northbound can travel south on the A9 to Keir Roundabout, then return north through the contraflow.

The resurfacing will benefit more than 15,700 vehicles who use this route each day, creating a smoother ride for motorists and reducing the need for ongoing maintenance.

Please note, all schemes are weather dependent and may be cancelled or rescheduled if weather conditions are not favourable

Deadline - 23rd July 2024 at 4pm.

Enforcement against parking on pavements, parking at crossing points and double parking will begin in Stirling on Monday, 15th July.

The Transport (Scotland) Act 2019 prohibits pavement parking, double parking, and parking on the carriageway adjacent to a footway where the footway has been lowered or the carriageway raised to assist crossing by pedestrians or cyclists.

The law aims to improve the safety of pedestrians, particularly those with mobility issues or visual impairments, and parents or carers with pushchairs. Footways are not designed to bear the weight of a vehicle and persistent parking is likely to cause damage.

Local authorities now have the power to enforce this law and issues fines by way of a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) of £100, which is reduced to £50 if paid within 14 days.

Enforcement officers will begin issuing PCNs (Penalty Charge Notice) from 15 July. The Council’s enforcement officers will be issuing advisory notices from 1 to 14 July where vehicles are parked in contravention of the new legislation.

As part of the budget cuts this year, the lollipop crossings on the two roads are to be replaced by Zebra crossings.  Please give any feedback on the design to Nikki Slack (This email address is being protected from spambots.
