Carluddon A391 road improvement and technology park

The Carluddon A391 road improvement and technology park was a proposal to build a new section of the A391 road at Carluddon, and create a new Technology Park next to it. The technology park included constructing the first employment building, and creation of a masterplan to guide development for the remaining employment land.

Construction on the road improvement commenced in March 2014 and the road was opened in early 2016.  The improvements consisted of a 1.6km section of new road, a new roundabout, alterations to the Scredda roundabout, two new bridges to provide safe walking and cycling links across the A391 to the Clay Trails, and improvements to the bus infrastructure.
