Linkroad could stay­open

Stirling Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

A Stir­ling link road which was in­tro­duced to re­duce the im­pact of two bridge re­place­ments could be here to stay.

The route be­tween Play­ers Road and Forth­side Way was opened to one-way traf­fic in 2013 as work got un­der­way on build­ing new Shore Road bridge.

Fears of traf­fic grid­lock dur­ing work to re­place the Kerse Road bridge led to the widen­ing of the link and its open­ing to two-way traf­fic.

Coun­cil of­fi­cials had in­sisted use of the road was a tem­po­rary mea­sure.

But this week a spokesper­son said: “The route has op­er­ated well dur­ing this pe­riod, pro­vid­ing a vi­tal link be­tween Springk­erse, Forth­side and the city cen­tre.

“The coun­cil is cur­rently re­view­ing this and con­sid­er­ing re­tain­ing this link on a per­ma­nent ba­sis.”
