Resurfacing works in Maybole mean A77 closure

Resurfacing works are set to take place in Maybole over the next two Sundays meaning a closure of the A77 for two hours on these days.

Scotland TranServ on behalf of Transport Scotland are to carry out resurfacing to the A77 through Maybole, following up on a programme of works carried out last year. A quality review of the road has been undertaken which has identified the need for additional resurfacing and lining to ensure local communities continue to have a road fit for purpose.

The repairs will see approximately 700m of the carriageway resurfaced, delivering long-term benefits to drivers along the A77 at Maybole.

In order to carry out this essential road surface improvement project as quickly and safely as possible, it will be necessary to implement a full road closure on Sunday 13 and Sunday 20 September from 8.00am to 8.00pm. With parking restrictions in place between John Knox St and Maybole Golf Club.

Gordon Wilson, Scotland TranServ’s Contract Director said: “Across south west Scotland we are improving the trunk roads network on behalf of Transport Scotland, supporting the economic growth and development of this important region.

“Carrying out these remedial works will ensure long-term, tangible benefits for drivers in this part of Ayrshire.”
