Al­loa Road clo­sure fury

Stirling Observer - - SCHOOL NEWS -

Face­book cor­re­spon­dents had steam com­ing out their ears af­ter read­ing in last Fri­day’s Ob­server (Fe­bru­ary 10, 2017) that Al­loa Road, Cause­way­head, was to close for five weeks from Mon­day (Fe­bru­ary 13) for gas work. It fol­lowed news that Stir­ling’s Kerse Bridge is to shut for 12 months later this year, and the on­go­ing prob­lems of the bridge at Bal­fron Sta­tion.

Jackie McKech­nie said:“The rate they’re go­ing they would be as well tak­ing Stir­ling off the map for a year. This is no way to en­cour­age tourism. Yet again proof that Stir­ling is run by a bunch of idiots and is cer­tainly not a city.”

Linzi Bryce:“Oh bril­liant. The City is tor­ture enough to get round as it is. Speed bumps ga­lore and that’s if you can nav­i­gate all the bin lor­ries in the Raploch in the morn­ing and along Cause­way­head road dur­ing rush hour. Stir­ling Coun­cil are need­ing to get their act to­gether. The town is be­com­ing a mis­ery.”

Kenny McKaig:“This is get­ting as bad as Trump’s wall. Soon there will be that many clo­sures you won’t be able to get in to Stir­ling un­less by para­chute. Do none of the or­gan­i­sa­tions talk and plan to­gether. Right, where can I get my para­chute.”

An­drew James For­tune:“This is ex­actly why I’ll be cy­cling to work most days un­til the road clo­sures are fin­ished. It’s an ab­so­lute joke when all roads in/ out are com­pletely queued back. I’ve never ex­pe­ri­enced this con­ges­tion so of­ten in the last 3.5 years com­mut­ing into Stir­ling. My time is too valu­able to waste.”

Dianna Bartlett:“Is there some sort of plan to shut Stir­ling off from ev­ery­where else?”

Bernie McGurk:“Stir­ling is be­com­ing more and more of no go area. Just put up a sign on all ap­proaches: `Stir­ling is closed for es­sen­tial main­te­nance’”.
