Newly-elected SNP Councillor for Stirling East, Alison Laurie, is set to hold a consultation with local residents on improving the safety of Pike Road that runs adjacent to the Broomridge area. The consultation comes after a large number of residents voiced serious concerns over a largely unregulated speed limit on the Pike Road.

Councillor Laurie will contact each local resident over the next few days, asking for views on how to make the road safer for drivers and pedestrians.

Commenting, Councillor Alison Laurie said:

“This is a serious concern within the local community and it is important that Stirling Council commits to making our roads safer.

“Local residents are best placed to make suggestions about how we can work to improve the safety of the Pike Road – which all too often sees cars speeding past a built-up residential area.

“The SNP Group has pledged to work to improve road safety by introducing safer speed limits but it is clear that something further must be done to slow the flow of traffic that comes off of the A91.

“I look forward to hearing the views of local residents on this issue and urge residents to get in touch.”
