POLICE have announced that marked and unmarked vehicles will be patrolling Wee County roads, amid concerns from residents.

The decision comes after they received several reports of speeding vehicles in Clackmannanshire during the evenings.

The vehicles were reported along the A91 in Alva, Menstrie and into Blairlogie, as well as on the A907 between Manor Powis and Tullibody.

Police have stated the reasoning behind the operation is "to detect and deter any offenders and ensure our roads are safe."

Officers have asked anyone who observes any vehicle driving at excessive speeds in these areas to call 101.

Sandra Rees, chair of the Alva Community Council, added: "We're concerned about the recent reports of speeding and encourage locals to always stick to the speed limits."

Plans for additional puffin traffic light crossings were raised by the Alva Regeneration Project in February.

The public consultation for the project between Alva Community Council and the Clackmannanshire Council had over 600 visitors and the motion for the extra crossings was supported.

The council hope to get the funding needed in order to introduce these by 2020.
