Stirling MSP Bruce Crawford has spoken of his disappointment, following the decision from Transport Scotland not to install a pedestrian crossing in Strathyre.


Mr Crawford has supported efforts from the local community in campaigning for a pedestrian crossing, and has previously written to the Chief Executive of Transport Scotland, calling for such a crossing to be considered.


In response to Transport Scotland’s decision, Mr Crawford has written to residents in Strathyre, expressing his disappointment and committing to meet with local residents to discuss the matter further.


Commenting, Bruce Crawford said:


“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.”
