134664Photo #134664There is no safe crossing here for pedestrians and cyclists coming in from Plean on A9 and Cowie on B9124. Crossing near the roundabouts is very hazardous & I have had several near misses. Sight lines are poor. An extension of a cycleway from A9 & B9124 to meet at Greenyards Garden Centre and install a Toucan crossing to Bannockburn. This would give minimal disruption and hazard to motor traffic and benefit both people in transit and employees/customers at the Bus depot and Garden Centre & other businesses. It would also allow a safe route on foot/bike / mobility aid to the Crematorium nearby on the A9. Further housing development nearby is proposed, safe active travel routes across the A91 will be even more necessary.Cycleway:

134654Photo #134654A9 is the most direct link from Larbert, Plean to Bannockburn & Stirling but is a narrow and busy road with high level of risk for cyclists, especially in peak hours. The existing footpath offers a good potential cycle/walking path but is very narrow in parts. It should be widened to make a shared use path linking these communities.Track:

36466Photo #36466Replacement Bridge

Location: , Lochearnhead (Scotland, United Kingdom)

At Craggan, between Balquidder Station and Lochearnhead, NCN Route 7 follows the route of the old Lochearnhead, St Fillans and Comrie Railway, before climbing steeply up the hillside to join the trackbed of the old Callander and Oban. This modern structure replaces the Kendrum viaduct, spanning the gorge of the Kendrum Burn that flows into Loch Earn.

This bridge was built raised with funds in memory of a cyclist killed nearby on the A9 road. It's a shame that in this country cyclists have to die before really god quality infrastructure like this is considered.

Taken on a 770 mile cycle tour of Scotland, from my front door in Edinburgh to Dunnet Head, the most northerly point in mainland Britain.
