    Transport Scotland not to install A84 Strathyre pedestrian crossing

    Written by on August 15, 2019

    Transport Scotland have decided against installing a pedestrian crossing in Strathyre.

    Members of the local community have been campaigning for one to be put in place on the A84.

    But the agency say, at present, a crossing “isn’t justified” in the village.

    Stirling MSP Bruce Crawford has described their decision as “disappointing”.

    “This is indeed a disappointing decision from Transport Scotland, and I intend to meet with local people at the earliest opportunity to discuss the matter in detail and to assess what can be done from this point. 

    “The face of Strathyre has changed over the years; with a growing number of visitors and expanded primary school, there is clearly more of a need for a pedestrian crossing to better facilitate a safe environment when crossing 5he main road through the village.”
