CITY of Stirling has launched a street cleaning program with a focus on keeping tourism precincts and shopping centres up to scratch.

Stirling engineering operations manager Ron Spragg said the street cleaning team would focus on repairing faults, safety hazards, removing weeds and graffiti and cleaning up rubbish.

“We’re maintaining the City’s major shopping and tourist precincts to a high standard,” he said.

“We will maintain the condition, safety and appearance of the City’s assets within these precincts including footpaths, kerbs, paved areas, drainage pipes and pits, road surfaces and islands, streetlights, street furniture, seats, bollards, bin surrounds, bus shelters and public signs.”

The Stirling Times reported in May that ‘pre-drinking’ areas on Main Street were causing an increase in smashed bottles and litter in front of businesses.
