CENTRAL Scotland Police are urging drivers to use caution on the roads in the Forth Valley area due to large amounts of surface water.
A Central Scotland Police spokeswoman said, "The area has experienced heavy rainfall today and large amounts of water have gathered on the road surfaces. We urge motorists to drive according to the road conditions, reduce your speed, increase the distance between you and the vehicle in front and allow more time for your journey."
The Marchglen road in Tillicoultry is closed due to flooding as is the A907 Alloa Road at Craig Mill between Manor Powis roundabout and Causewayhead roundabout.
"Motorists should also be aware of run-off from fields on many rural roads in the area. These roads are passable with care and we urge motorists heading home in the evening rush hour to adhere to our warnings," the spokeswoman added.
Posthill in Sauchie is also closed but this is down to a burst water mains.
