Name and dates

Alloa West Level Crossing (1850-1984)

Description

This was a level crossing with Grange Place in the west of Alloa. The crossing was originally known as Grange Crossing.

Alloa West Junction was to its west from 1885.

To the east were sidings on either side of the line.

This remained the main western approach to Alloa, from the Cambus direction, until a new road was opened north of the line.

The railway was singled in 1979 and closed to traffic over and east of the crossing in 1984.

For the re-opening to Alloa in 2007 the crossing was stopped up. A new footbridge over the line has been installed and roadbridge placed over the line about a quarter of a mile to the west.
