Specialist contractors to address Stirling rock fall

The William Wallace Monument sits on top of Abbey Craig.

SPECIALIST rock fall contractors have been brought on board to remove loose material from the Abbey Craig hill in Stirling.

It comes following the closure of Alloa Road to westbound traffic after a rock fall left the hill face unstable.

Convenor of Stirling Council’s environment and housing committee, councillor Jim Thomson, said, “In the interest of public safety, it is necessary to close this road while the contractors undertake the task of scaling back the fractured rock.

“We understand the closure is going to cause inconvenience for drivers, however this work is significant and much-needed to ensure local residents and commuters remain safe on the A907 and surrounding areas.”
