CLACKS workers heading to rural Stirling can anticipate delays over the upcoming weeks as work takes place on the A84.

Four sections of the A84 between Kingshouse and Stirling are set to be worked on from Monday, January 11 until Thursday, February 18.

The £800,000 programme of improvements will see almost 4km of the A84 resurfaced, promoting better ride comfort and safer journeys for motorists.
Work will take place on the A84 Drumloist from Monday, January 11 until Sunday, January 17 and then on the A84 West of Safari Park between Monday, January 18 and Thursday, January 28.

Both of these programmes will take place every night between those dates except Friday and Saturday nights, with a 10mph convoy system in place between 7pm and 7am each night.

Then, work will take place on the A84 West of Auction Mart from Sunday, January 31 until Monday, February 1, with the same convoy system and speed.
Weather permitting, the work will end following works on the A84 Kingshouse which will take place from Wednesday, February 3 until Thursday, February 18.

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

Access for emergency services will be maintained at all times.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s representative for the north west, said: “This £800,000 investment from Transport Scotland will upgrade the existing road surface, greatly improving the quality and safety of these sections of the A84 for road users.

“The traffic management proposed is essential to the safety of our teams and motorists, however we have taken steps in an effort to minimise disruption by carrying out the majority of the works overnight and avoiding works during typically busy periods of road operation.

 “We thank motorists 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.”
