Kerse Road Stirling - Bridge Works
In order to clear for electrification, we need to height clear structures on the line so we can safely run overheadline wires below. This includes at Kerse Road bridge in Stirling where we will demolish and reconstruct the bridge to meet the standards required for operating a safe electrified railway.
While work on Kerse Road is required now to enable the forthcoming electrification of the line, the new bridge has enabled Network Rail to work with Stirling Council to create the potential to enhance the local road network in line with the City’s transport strategy. It also avoids the need for the council to undertake significant maintenance on the bridge in the next few years with the new structure having a lifespan in excess of 100 years.
