Emergency Road Closure – Port Street, Stirling

Emergency Road Closure – Port Street, Stirling
Please read the below information from Stirling Council: On Saturday 16 December 2023, Stirling Council’s Building Standards Team was contacted by a business on Port Street following reports of fallen masonry from a private building. A safety zone was put in place on the footway in front of the premises (Ginger Roots greengrocers) until further investigations could be undertaken by an engineer.Tonight (20 December), we received a report from a structural engineer, following their inspection of the property this afternoon. This identified further structural risks requiring the extension of the safety zone to ensure public safety.Stirling Council is required by law to take action and carry out work to protect the public in or in places adjacent to a dangerous building under the Building (Scotland) Act 2003. As a result, we are closing the southbound lane on Port Street (from Upper Craigs to King’s Park Road) and the footway in front of the affected property. Diversion route is listed below.All efforts are being made to ensure that impacts to the adjacent businesses and city centre are kept to a minimum.No-one is currently residing in the three flats in the affected building and all occupants and owners are being contacted.Impacted businesses and other key stakeholders are being informed of the situation and we will provide further updates as soon as possible.At this stage it is still unclear how long it will take for the property owners to repair the building and we will continue to keep residents and businesses updated while we work with the property owners to make their building safe.However, it is likely that these essential safety measures will be required to remain in place over the festive period.We apologise for the inconvenience this will cause at this time of year as we work with the property owners to resolve the situation. However, we must ensure the safety of the public.
 Diversion route:Via: Dumbarton Road, Albert Place, Queen’s Road, Victoria Place, Drummond Place, Snowdon Place, St Ninians Road, Port Street.
