Alastair Majury on Councillor Dodds calls for transformation of land to ease Bridge of Allan parking woes

Alastair Majury’s colleague Councillor Dodds is calling for action

As reported in the Stirling Observer my ward colleague (Councillor Douglas Dodds) is calling for Network Rail to change the use of the land at Bridge of Allan train station so that it can be used for commuter parking.

I as a fellow local ward councillor back him 100% on this issue.

My esteemed colleague has said “Both sides of Cawder Road are full of vehicles. They are parked there all day, nose to tail, on both sides of the road. It’s so bad that the C48 (Bannockburn to Dunblane) bus has had problems getting round the corner. It’s causing a lot of inconvenience to people who live there.”

Councillor Dodds said this week that the land to the south of the car park could be used for more parking spaces.

He said: “The roads around Bridge of Allan station are as bad as ever. “Congestion in the area during the week is huge problem. I’m suggesting to Network Rail that the land they are using as a yard by the station during electrification works be handed over to create more parking spaces. They are badly needed. It would go some way to improving the situation.”

If you have any suggestions as to how to improve the parking situation in Bridge of Allan or Dunblane please e-mail Brian Roberts at robertsb@stirling.gov.uk who is looking at the strategy for Stirling Council.
