Network Rail have announced that the Kerse Bridge will be re-opening on Friday 19th October – following months of closure.
Commenting, Stirling MSP Bruce Crawford said:
“This is good news, and the work of those involved who have worked tirelessly to get this bridge reopened must be commended – particularly as the reopening is due now a week early. Many local residents will now breathe a sigh of relief.
“Commuters in and out of Stirling have been patient over the past few months as this bridge as undergone a complete reconstruction. I have visited the site many times as various stages, and the scale of the work being carried out was breath-taking.
“However, the new bridge makes way for the electrification of the railway line underneath. This project is part of the biggest transportation of Scotland’s railways in many decades and will see passengers boarding faster, greener and longer trains.
“I will remain in close contact with both Network Rail and Stirling Council in coming days and will help to relay any advice they may have as we approach the bridge reopening.”
