Repair work is set to commence on the Old Harbour Wall at Riverside, Stirling.
A section of the wall had collapsed, and the repair project will see work on the water pipes at the site begin later this month. Construction works have been planned to start in late April, with all work expected to be completed by Summer 2017.
The work will provide residents and visitors with access to enjoy the riverside picnic site. In addition, as the Old Harbour area is intended to be a river access point in the Stirling City Region Development plans, longer term planning will be considered over the coming months to develop a more comprehensive plan for the area.
Stirling Council’s Environment Convenor, Councillor Danny Gibson, said: “This repair work represents the beginning of a transformational opportunity to develop the River Forth through Stirling which will be enjoyed by both residents and visitors.
“Transforming the River Forth back into the heart of Stirling will provide better access links, recreational opportunities, and will improve the wildlife and beauty of the river.”
