Night closures for A77

The final phase of a £112k programme of improvements on the A77 at Meiklewood is set to commence on 22 March 2016 with two night-time closures.

Scotland TranServ, on behalf of Transport Scotland, will carry out the replacement of a new weigh-in, motion sensor which will allow data about the number and type of vehicles using the route to be captured.

To carry out these works safely and to protect both motorists and operatives there will be two nights of closures on the A77 at multiple locations.

Andy Fraser, operating company representative for Scotland TranServ said: “The replacement of the weigh-in, motion sensors will allow our client Transport Scotland to gather vital information relevant to traffic usage on the A77 and M77.

“We have planned our works to be carried out overnight, when traffic flows are lighter however motorists travelling along this route or via Prestwick Airport should leave plenty of time for their journeys.”

Motorists can access real time traffic information by visiting Traffic Scotland’s website or following @trafficscotland on Twitter.
