Replacement Gas Pipes – Parking Restrictions

Information received: from SGN via Stirling Council:

SGN will shortly begin work to upgrade the gas network within the Dean Crescent area of Stirling.

This essential work involves the replacement of 1400m of old, metal gas mains with new plastic pipe, ensuring a continued safe and reliable gas supply to the local community. It will also ensure our network is ready for green sources of energy, such as hydrogen, in future.

We’ve planned our work in close consultation with the local authorities to reduce disruption as much as possible. Our project will begin on Monday 9 May and will be carried out by our contractor George Ritchie, Utilities on our behalf and will take approximately seven weeks to complete.

During these operations parking restrictions will be in place allowing safe access to our existing pipework. Works will start in the Dean Crescent area before heading east into Cambuskenneth.

Affected street:

·         Dean Crescent (both sides), Stirling between junction with Riverside Drive & Forth Street

·         Forrest Road (both sides) between junctions with Dean Crescent & Edward Road

·         Riverside Drive (both sides) between Sutherland Drive and Abbey Mill

·         Abbey Road (both sides) between Abbey Mill & Cooperage Quay

·         Forth Place outside 25-29  

·         Ferry Orchard, Cambuskenneth (both sides full street)

·         Ladysneuk Road, Cambuskenneth (both sides) between 9 and 23

Emergency vehicle access will be maintained throughout our works.
