Speed Reduction Plans: A Real Win For The Community

Slow

Stirling’s MSP Bruce Crawford has hailed Stirling Council plans to tackle speeding in Drymen as a win for the community after a number of local residents has raised their complaints about the issue.

Mr Crawford contacted Stirling Council and Police Scotland to highlight his concerns on the matter – which were met with a prompt response from Council Officials.

Officers have met with local representatives and members of the local community several times to discuss a series of measures which are expected to be implemented within the current financial year. These include:

  • Introduction of 40mph speed limit on B858 Stirling Road (east) from A811 to the village.
  • Provision of improved gateway on B858 Stirling Road (east).
  • Review/removal/replacement of the traffic island opposite the cycle path on B858 Main Street.
  • Review singing in the village to reduce proliferation.

Commenting, Bruce Crawford said:
