These works form part of a strategic project to create a bicycle friendly route connecting the Stirling City Centre and train station with the Scarborough Beach Precinct. The 'Bicycle Boulevard Project' will be carried out to make roads safer and more user-friendly for all road users including motorists, pedestrians, cyclists and residents. This will be achieved by designing a road system where the driver is encouraged to naturally adapt safe and appropriate behaviour within the design and function of the road, using elements such as increased landscaping, intersection treatments, additional on-street parking and kerbed median islands to create a visually distinct road environment.

- Kerb removal and replacement and modification of kerb alignments
