BEAR Consultation Letter – M9 Junction 10 SB


BEAR Scotland, acting on behalf of Transport Scotland, is planning to carry out essential resurfacing works on a section of the M9 southbound at Junction 10 between the off-slip and on-slip. Please find the enclosed location plan for clarity.


The works have been provisionally programmed to commence on Thursday 24th March 2022 for a duration of 1 night between the hours of 19:30 and 06:00.


To ensure the safety of the workforce and members of the travelling public it is necessary to close the M9 Southbound between Junction 11 (Keir Roundabout) and Junction 9 during the works.


During this period of closure, a signed diversion route will be in place travelling southbound via Kier Roundabout (Junction 11), A9, A907, A91 and the A9 before re-joining M9 southbound at Junction 9. A location plan showing this diversion route is attached. Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times and all traffic management will be removed out with working hours.


If you require any further information or would like to comment on any of the proposed works please do not hesitate to contact Barrie Harrison by email at

Neighbourhood Watch – Litter and Flytipping Consultation

National Litter and Flytipping Strategy Consultation

Litter and Flytipping continue to be a growing issue in all our communities

This Scottish Government consultation, which was drafted in partnership with Zero Waste Scotland, Keep Scotland Beautiful and Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA), is seeking views on the aims, objectives and actions that will sit under, the new National Litter and Flytipping Strategy for Scotland.

These proposed actions sit within three strategic themes that were agreed by stakeholders:
Behaviour change
Services and infrastructure

Evaluating the progress and effectiveness of the strategy is also acknowledged to be of vital importance. Data and research has been recognised as a cross-cutting theme and comprises an integral and essential part of the other three themes listed above.

Why your views matter
The responses to this consultation will help shape and deliver the final strategy which will be published in 2022. Engagement and consultation with a wide range of stakeholders is a crucial aspect of the new strategy development.

To take part in the consultation see link below

The consultation closes on 31st March 2022

Neighbourhood Watch – Rail Disruption

Significant Rail Disruption – Scotland – Advice from Scotrail

Due to Storm Dudley, services will be disrupted on Wednesday, 16 February 2022.

As a safety precaution, our services will cease to run from tomorrow (16 February) afternoon. Services will wind down by 4pm, when the worst of Storm Dudley’s strong winds and heavy rain are set to hit Scotland.

ScotRail services on the Far North, Kyle of Lochalsh, and Aberdeen-Inverness lines will continue to run. Some cross-border services will operate too, but at reduced speeds.

We know the impact that the earlier withdrawal of services will have on customers but it’s a necessary step to ensure the safety of our staff and customers due to the severe weather.

If you have to travel over the next few days, please plan ahead and check your journey before setting off.

Visit our website for more information.

Neighbourhood Watch – Storm Warnings

Amber Weather Warning – Links To Advice

From Neighbourhood Watch

You may be aware that the Met Office has issued AMBER weather warnings for the winds on Wednesday/Thursday. This is expected to cover an area including Strathclyde, Dumfries & Galloway, Forth Valley, Western Fife and the Lothians & Borders. The Amber warning is likely to be valid from 1800 on Wednesday until 0900 on Thursday and be assessed as a medium likelihood of medium impacts including:

·         Road, rail, air and ferry services may be affected, and some roads and bridges are likely to close, leading to longer journey times and cancellations. There is also the potential for cross border travel issues.

·         Probably some fallen trees and damage to buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs.

·         There is a good chance that power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage.

·         Injuries and danger to life is likely from large waves and beach material being thrown onto coastal roads, sea fronts and properties.

It is important to note that there is another current YELLOW warning, which also indicates potential disruption. On Friday – “Storm Eunice” –  is forecast to impact Dumfries & Galloway, the Borders and southern parts of the Lothians and Strathclyde.

The warnings can be viewed on the Met Office website

Scottish Trunk Road Network




BEAR Scotland, acting on behalf of Transport Scotland, are planning to carry out essential concrete investigation works on the Craigforth Bridge at M9 Junction 10.

Slip road closures will be in place at M9 Junction 10 Craigforth on the night of Monday 14th February. The northbound on-slip and the southbound off-slip will be closed from 20:00 until 06:00.

Traffic wishing to join the M9 northbound at Junction 10 will be diverted via M9 Junction 9.

Traffic wishing to exit the M9 southbound at Junction 10 will be diverted via M9 Junction 11.

The works are programmed to ensure safety of road users and engineering staff alike, whilst minimising disruption to travellers.

The safety of maintenance workers remains a top priority during these essential projects and strict physical distancing protocols, in line with Scottish Government guidance, will be in place to ensure all on-site personnel remain safe throughout the duration of the project. Robust risk assessments have also been completed to ensure all staff are kept safe.

If you require any further information or would like to comment on the proposed works, please do not hesitate to contact Georgios Stravodimos by email at


Yours faithfully,
