UPDATE: Thursday 9 November
Our work has progressed much better than we expected, and we've completed phase one of this project one month ahead of schedule.
The A820 between Doune and Dunblane will be reopened to traffic tomorrow (Friday 10 November).
After the Christmas and New Year period, we'll need to carry out the remainder of our work in the field next to the road and two-way temporary traffic lights will be in place to ensure everyone's safety.
We anticipate that this final phase of our work will take less than a week to complete.
We’re investing £400,000 to increase the capacity of our gas network in the A820 between Doune and Dunblane.
Following discussions with the local authority, the work will start on Monday 16 October 2017 and will last until mid-December this year.
You’ll find further details, such as where we’ll be working, in our customer leaflet.
For the duration of our work, the A820 will be closed between Doune and Dunblane. This is to ensure the safety of our engineers as the work is carried out.
A diversion route will be in place for motorists via the A9 and the B824. This however, isn’t suitable for HGV’s.
A separate diversion route will be in place for HGV’s via the A9, the M9 and the A84.
