UPGRADES TO A9 AT CADGER’S BRAE DUE TO BEGIN IN 2022
Falkirk Council have confirmed to Falkirk East MSP, Michelle Thomson, that plans are in place to improve Grandsable junction on the A9. This follows recent concerns from residents over a series of incidents at the junction, including the recent fatal accident at East Beancross access which is still under investigation.
In a letter received by the local MSP, Falkirk Council advise that improvement of the junction of the A9 and Grandsable Road and Junction 5 Cadgers Brae roundabout has been included in Falkirk Council’s approved TIF (Tax Incremental Financing) submission.
It is also advised that works involving the installation of traffic signals at both the Grandsable Road junction and Cadgers Brae roundabout are programmed to commence early in 2022.
Commenting, Michelle Thomson MSP, said:
“I welcome this commitment from Falkirk Council. Clearly there have been concerns raised over this part of the A9 for some time, and I am pleased to see that there will be improvements made in the coming months.
“While Falkirk Council have these plans in progress, it is up to each of us, as individual drivers, to ensure we are not placing any of our fellow road users in danger. Particularly in areas we know are more difficult to navigate than others.
“I look forward to these plans coming to fruition in the near future and would encourage everyone on our roads to stay safe and have consideration for other road users.”
