PLANS for a link road at Viewforth and changes to the transport network connecting Kings Park and Stirling South have been unveiled by the local authority.

Elected members on Stirling Council this week heard proposals to change the way people can move around the Torbrex, King’s Park and Braehead areas by foot, bike or motor vehicle.

A series of community road shows are also due to start next week to show off the ideas – central to which is a new link road through the council’s Viewforth site with increased capacity for walking and cycling also planned.

Councillor Jim Thomson, convener of the Environment and Housing Committee, explained: “We have been discussing plans for a new road on the Viewforth site for a number of years.

“Now we hope to take it forward as part of an exciting package of measures to make the city centre and the neighbourhoods to the south of it, places for people, as well as traffic.

“A key part of this will be engaging with the public, showing them our proposals and getting feedback on these plans.

“The drop-ins will be open to everyone and we’re asking the community to come along and talk to us about these proposals.”

Community sessions will start at Braehead Primary on November 13 and 14, then at the Old Viewforth council chambers on November 16 and 17.
