A77 shut between Maybole and Girvan this weekend

The A77 between Maybole and Girvan is set to be closed this weekend in both directions due to essential resurfacing works.

The main route will be closed from 11pm on Friday 27 March until 5am on Monday March 30 to allow £127,000 worth of improvement works on the A77 west of Glenluie Farm in Kirkoswald to be carried out by Scotland Tran Serv on behalf of Transport Scotland.

Diversions will be in place Northbound and South Bound as follows:

Southbound

B7023 from Maybole Crosshill, then B741 to Turnberry.

Northbound

A719 from Turnberry to Pennyglen then B7023 to Maybole.

Gordon Wilson, contract director, Scotland TranServ said:

“This essential maintenance scheme is vital to ensuring we prolong the lifespan of the road surface benefiting road users using the A77.”

“In order to minimise disruption to local residents and motorists alike the works will take place over one weekend when traffic flows are lighter however I would urge motorists to plan their journeys.”

Motorists can keep up to date with real time traffic information by visiting www.trafficscotland.org or following @TrafficScotland on Twitter. Advanced warning signs will also be in place on the approach to inform motorists that roadworks are taking place.
