Work to replace the level crossing barriers on the level crossing at Cornton will result in the closure of the road.
Network Rail are replacing the current half-barrier system with new barriers which will stretch across the whole road. The crossing is on the line between Stirling and Dunblane.
To carry out the work, Cornton Road will be closed to traffic and pedestrians from 23:30hrs on Friday 30 April until 06:00hrs on Monday 10 May.
The road will be closed from its junction with Forth Park to its junction with Carsaig Court to enable the barriers, signalling telecoms and track work to take place.
Part of the upgrades taking place is the installation of Optical remote sensing technology, which scans for objects on the track
Pedestrians needing to cross the railway during the road closure can use either the pedestrian level crossing at Easter Cornton Road or the footbridge at Adamson Place/Dumyat Road.
Cars will be diverted through Cornton Road, Fountain Road, Henderson Street, Airthrey Road, Causewayhead Road, Cornton Road and vice versa.
Heavy goods vehicles will need to use the diversion via Cornton Road, Fountain Road, Henderson Street, Airthrey Road, Alloa Road, A91, Kerse Road, Burghmuir Road, Causewayhead Road, Cornton Road and vice versa.
Innis Keith, head of operational safety for Network Rail in Scotland, said: “We are approaching the final stages of this vital project to upgrade Cornton Road level crossing.
“When the level crossing re-opens, the barriers will stretch across the full length of the road, so there will be a significant and positive change, not just in how the crossing looks, but in how safe it is for trains, vehicles and pedestrians to use.
“While we understand the importance of this through route for local traffic, and that closing it isn’t ideal, diversion routes will be in place to minimise inconvenience to the community.
“We apologise to anyone affected by this work and thank you for your continued support and patience throughout these essential improvement works.”
