Road improvement works to take place in Girvan on Sunday

Road improvement works are planned for Sunday in Girvan- the day of the 33rd annual Lowland Gathering.

But Scotland Transerv say the diversion route is minimal and they don’t anticipate any impact on those attending the event which starts at 12.45pm in Girvan’s Victory Park.

The £82,000 worth of road improvement works are set to take place on the A77 at Old Street in the town and will improve the quality of the road surface for years to come.

The road will be totally closed during Sunday from 9am to 4pm with the following diversion routes in place:

Diversion - Sunday 1st June 2014 between 09:00 and 16:00 only


Closure of A77 at Bridgemill Roundabout Girvan – take left onto B734 then turn right onto Coalpots Road Girvan – continue to Shallochpark Roundabout and take 2nd exit to rejoin the A77 southbound


Closure of A77 at Shallochpark Roundabout – take right 2nd exit onto Coalpots Road – continue to junction with B734 – Turn left on to B734 – continue to Bridgemill Roundabout – take right 2nd exit to rejoin the A77 Northbound

Local access to Girvan at Shallochpark roundabout will be maintained at all times.

Lane and parking restrictions will be in place daily between the hours of 09:00 and 16:00 from Monday 2 June to Wednesday 4 June. Traffic will be managed under a convoy system for the protection of the workforce and members of the public during these periods.

Russell Rennie, contract director, Scotland TranServ comments:

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

“Regrettably, there will be some delays however we would advise motorists to plan ahead and leave plenty of time for their journeys.”

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