Stirling MP Stephen Kerr has started a campaign to get the A811 from Stirling to Balloch “Trunked”; taken into Transport Scotland’s control instead of the local Council’s.
This means the road will be considered an important route and will receive more funding for repairs and upkeep.
Stephen has already written to the Scottish Government’s Transport Secretary, Michael Matheson, asking if he will consider trunking the A811. The response was long but could be surmised as “No”. In order to show the local level of support for this move, the MP has now started a petition, which has already gained the support of businesses from across Stirlingshire.
Stirling MP Stephen Kerr said:
It was disappointing that the Scottish Government refused to trunk the A811, clearly, they do not believe there is significant support for it. To show them otherwise I’ve set up a petition, which you can sign here: www.stephenkerr.org/a811
Please do sign then share amongst your friends and family, let’s show the Scottish Government there IS support locally for this and get them to change their mind.
