Reducing Accidents

Each year around 70 people are killed or seriously injured in road accidents in the Stirling Council area and a further 275 are slightly injured. To reduce the number and severity of accidents on our roads, we published our Road Safety Plan

The main road safety duties performed include;
  • Undertaking accident investigation & prevention studies
  • Developing and reviewing the Road Safety Plan
  • Providing road safety advice
  • Analysing accident data and statistics
  • Carrying out road safety audits
  • Working with road safety partners to reduce accidents

Traffic Lights 

Traffic signals are designed to optimise and control traffic at a junction by sharing out the time to different arms of the junction ensuring that pedestrians and cyclists are given the same opportunities as vehicles.

Temporary Traffic Signals

Temporary signals are used by both contractors and the Council during roadworks. 

The Council co-ordinate such works and have emergency contact details for all operators.  Anyone wishing to apply to use temporary traffic signals should do so by using the application form provided.

Please call the Contact Centre on 01786 404040 to report any faults you may be experiencing with any of the above.

You can see a list of planned roadworks here.
