The management of traffic is essential if we are to improve safety, environmental issues, accessibility, reduce congestion and to improve healthy living.
Traffic management covers parking, waiting restrictions, weight restrictions, signposting etc. It also, increasingly encompasses traffic calming, speed reduction schemes and home zones.
Clackmannanshire is becoming increasingly affluent and as a result car ownership is growing. We cannot keep covering up our green spaces with new roads and car parks. Therefore the Council is committed to maximising access to our existing roads and promoting travel opportunities. This is achieved through the management of bus facilities, taxis, pedestrians, cycling, car parking, disabled parking and access, loading and unloading, and residents' parking.
A priority is to provide easy access for people to our bus services and the railway station in Alloa.
Our traffic management officers must consider all users when making changes to the roads infrastructure often resulting in a compromise solution that balances the benefits among all groups.
Clackmannanshire Council as Roads Authority has prepared a tourist signposting strategy, designed to be sensitive to the needs of local tourism while not compromising the needs of local road safety, traffic management or amenity.
There are a number of bridges and roads in Clackmannanshire subject to height or weight restrictions. Please see the bridge and road restrictions page for more details, including links to maps.
Encouraging walking is vitally important within Clackmannanshire as a means of improving health and the environment. Nearly everybody walks at some part of their journey even if it only from their car to the shop. For may people walking is their primary method of travel. Therefore we need to make it as easy as possible for all pedestrians to get around using the footways. Find out more on our safer footways page.
