Places related to the A907

Alloa is a small town on the north shore of the Forth, and the county and administrative town for The Wee County of Clackmannanshire. The town has grown substantially over the last half century, and now almost includes the historic county town of Clackmannan to the east, and Tullibody to the west within the expanding urban area. The town grew up as a small port on the river, and still has an extensive industrial area along the banks of the Forth. To the west, near Tullibody, there are vast areas of bonded warehouses related to the Whisky Industry, and Alloa itself once had a distillery.

The main road through the town is the A907, which runs from Stirling east across Clackmannanshire and into Fife. To the west, the road was thoroughly rebuilt parallel to the old route a few years ago, and to the east Clackmannan has a bypass, but the route through the town can get quite congested at times, despite a town centre relief road. To the north, the B9096 and B9140 / B908 routes provide alternatives, but they pass through suburbia with pedestrian crossings, junctions and mini roundabouts galore. The western end of the B9140 is a new road, providing a northern bypass of Tullibody.

The A908 heads north out of Alloa, and takes a meandering route across the River Devon to Tillicoultry, where it meets the A91. The B909 provides a short connecting link between the A908 and A907 to the east of Alloa town centre. Further east again, the B910 follows part of the former A907 route through Clackmannan, before passing under the bypass on its original line. Finally, for centuries Alloa had a ferry across the Forth, which ceased after the opening of the Kincardine Bridge further downstream. The ferry was served by the B906, but the slipway and road on the north bank are now covered by industrial units.
