Another full weekend closure of the A77 between Girvan and Maybole is planned for the end of this month.

It’s all part of a £250,000 road mainteance scheme on a stretch of the road at Girvan Mains which will also included overnight closures.

Scotland TranServ, on behalf of Transport Scotland, says it will resurface a section of the A77 at Girvan Mains Farm using 24 hour, day and nighttime working to help reduce disruption.

Overnight closures from 8pm to 6am will be in place from Bridgemill Roundabout to Drumdow Road Junction commencing on Tuesday, August 23 until Thursday, August 25.

A full closure will then be implemented from 8pm on Friday, August 26 until 6am on Monday, August 29 to enable 24-hour working. During this closure, local access will be maintained from Drumdow Road junction to Dowhill Farm.

Scotland TranServ’s operating company representative, Andy Fraser said: “This resurfacing scheme will ensure the long term resilience of this stretch of the A77, which is travelled by almost 4,000 motorists each day.

“We have made every effort to programme the works out with peak times and overnight when traffic flows are considerably lighter, therefore reducing disruption to road users.”

Motorists should plan ahead and leave plenty of time for their journeys. They can keep up to date with real time traffic information by visiting www.trafficscotland.co.uk
