Overnight road closures from Girvan to Stranraer start on Monday

Users of the A77 Smyrton are set to benefit from essential road improvements which are set to get underway from Monday 6 October.

The project will see the replacement of 600 road studs and the replacement of double white lines on the A77 at Smyrton.

Due to the nature of the works and to ensure the safety of the workforce and motoring public there will be five nights of overnight total closures from Girvan to Stranraer with traffic diverted via the A714 and A75. These closures will be in place each night from 2200 to 0600 from Monday 6 to Saturday 11 October.

Russell Rennie, Scotland TranServ’s Contract Director said:

“Across south west Scotland we are investing to improve the trunk roads network on behalf of Transport Scotland, supporting the economic growth and development of this important region.”

“The safety of our workers and of the motoring public is of utmost importance to us and that is why this work will be carried out overnight.”

Motorists can keep up to date with real time traffic information by visiting www.trafficscotland.org or following their Twitter feed @trafficscotland.

Advanced warning signs will also be in place on the approach to the works to inform motorists that roadworks are taking place.
