Lane and road closures will be in place overnight for the next seven weeks

Recycled aggregates will be used, to reduce the project’s environmental impact.

BEAR Scotland manager Tommy Deans said: “The majority of the works can be carried out with lane closures rather than full road closures, however, we will need to close the slip road onto the motorway at Bannockburn in early July.”
