Kick Start Scheme

Stirling, Falkirk and Clackmannanshire Councils’ have collaborated as a Kick Start Representative (or Intermediary) through which Forth Valley Businesses can apply to host Kick Start work placements.

The Kick Start Scheme has been created to provide new 6-month paid work placements (fully funded) for young people who are currently on Universal Credit and at risk of long-term unemployment. Part of the Kick Start delivery involves ongoing employability support and we will work with businesses to identify the right approach for both the individual young person and host business.

I have attached a template and we ask that businesses interested in hosting a kick start placement complete and return to the E-mail associated with their local authority area – details are on the attached application template – as soon as possible.

Kind regards

A9 Allan Water Bridge to Keir Roundabout SB Carriageway Resurfacing

BEAR Scotland have a resurfacing scheme on the A9 Allan Water Bridge to Keir Roundabout SB with a proposed construction date of 25th September – 28th September 2020. These works will entail 24hr working and will commence at 19:30 on Friday 25th of September with works complete and all traffic management removed by 06:30 on Monday 28th September before the peak morning traffic. Due to the nature of these resurfacing works a contraflow system of traffic management will be required for the duration of the works.

Due to the nature and location of the works it will be necessary to close the A9 SB Off Slip for the A820/Doune Road during the works.

Southbound A9 traffic wishing to leave the A9 at the Off Slip for the A820/Doune Road will instead be diverted via the southbound A9 to Keir Roundabout and then via the northbound A9 to the NB Off Slip for the A820/Doune Road.

A double fast lane closure will be in place on the A9 overnight on Thursday 24th September for preparatory works ahead of the weekend closure.

Please see the attached location plans and diversion drawings.

We are aware that the location of the contraflow may have an impact on services scheduled to leave the southbound A9 at the Off Slip for the A820/Doune Road. We are currently waiting for feedback from the bus operating companies to try and mitigate the effect on passengers wishing to use any scheduled bus services for this location over the weekend closure.

Physical distancing protocols, in line with Scottish Government guidance, will be in place to protect the workforce during these essential maintenance works.

“I’m writing to you to make you aware of our upcoming £35,500 project to upgrade our gas network in Kenilworth Road, Bridge of Allan. This project involves us replacing our existing gas mains and services in the area with new plastic pipe.
Our essential work will ensure your community receives a continued safe and reliable gas supply for many years to come. We’re working closely with Scottish Government to make sure we carry out our project in line with all current coronavirus safety guidance.
We’re looking to start work from outside number 2 to number 24a Kenilworth Road on Monday, 21 September for four weeks. Our project will be carried out by our own engineers and will involve replacing around 240m of metallic main with new PE pipe. We will use an insertion technique if possible to avoid digging lengthy trenches in the road. During the work we will use ‘give and take’ and temporary traffic lights if required. It will be necessary to temporarily close the footpath but there will be no need to suspend parking.
We wish to assure you that our work will progress as quickly as possible and we’ll be doing everything we can to limit delays and disruption.
We have extra safety precautions in place to protect our colleagues and our communities from the virus. Our colleagues will be keeping to social distancing guidelines on our sites and we’d ask communities to keep their distance too. There’s more information about our coronavirus response on our website: sgn.co.uk/coronavirus
We’re writing to residents and other local stakeholders to make them aware of our project and explain the details of our work. Please feel free to also share this information with anyone you think may be impacted by our project.
Thank you in advance for your support.
Kind regards,
