Investment Welcome But Residents and Businesses Need Assurances

Local Member of Parliament Alyn Smith is urgently seeking answers regarding ongoing traffic disruption across the city of Stirling, as residents and businesses fume over delays and disruptions.

Writing to Labour Stirling Council Leader Chris Kane, Mr Smith emphasised the need for greater empathy from the Council towards businesses disrupted by works on roads and footpaths – particularly when ‘Business As Usual’ signs are not deployed when required.

Stirling’s MP also requested further information as to the schedule of works on Goosecroft Road, an important road artery through the city which has been partially closed for months due to ongoing works to install dedicated cycling infrastructure.

Stirling MP Alyn Smith said:

‘I completely support investment to make Stirling’s streets safer, and build out our dedicated cycling infrastructure. What’s not on is the poor communication to businesses and residents regarding disruption, and the pace at which works are progressing. I’m seeking urgent assurances from Council Leader Chris Kane as to the timescales involved to complete these projects, and what more can be done to ease the pressures on local residents and businesses facing noise, delays and diversions.

‘We all want Stirling to succeed, and I’m right behind efforts to improve driver, pedestrian and cyclist safety. But Labour and their Tory partners have questions to answer over what we’ve seen so far, and I urge them to work constructively with the community to keep things on track.’
