Cornton Level Crossing

Location type

Name and dates

Cornton Level Crossing (1848-)

Opened on the Scottish Central Railway.


This level crossing is north of Stirling and south of Bridge of Allan. The railway crosses the Cornton Road on an oblique.

Until 1983 there was a signal box here, on the west side of the line and north of the roadway. This was replaced with automatic half barriers.

The crossing was fitted with cameras as there have been many incidents here. The half barriers are to be replaced with full barriers. Plans to replace the crossing with a bridge have been abandoned. Easter Cornton Level Crossing, to the south, has been replaced with a footbridge.

The railway is now electrified with overhead wires.
