Delays Expected During A75 Resurfacing Work Near Gatehouse Starting This Weekend

Drivers are being warned to allow extra time for their journeys on the A75 in Dumfries and Galloway as lanes will be closed during the resurfacing of 1.1km of carriageway at Glenterry, between Twynholm and Gatehouse of Fleet this weekend.


In order to complete this £838k project as quickly and safely as possible, it will be necessary to implement a series of lane closures between Friday 16th and Friday 30th of November.


David Montgomery, Scotland TranServ’s trunk road design lead on the project said:


As part of Transport Scotland’s strategic trunk road structural maintenance programme, Scotland TranServ has been investing progressively to improve the road surface quality of the A75. Following a number of projects over the last few months, we will carry out further resurfacing works on 1.1kilometres of carriageway at Glenterry between Twynholm and Gatehouse of Fleet.
“This project has been planned in consultation with the local authority, emergency services and key stakeholders. The nature of the trunk road in this area allows us to complete this extensive programme of works under daytime lane closures, while allowing traffic to continue flowing. Lane closures are necessary in order to protect the safety of our workers and the travelling public.”


Lane closures will be implemented during the following times:


  • 8am on Friday 16th and 6pm on Friday 30th of November


Drivers are asked allow some extra time for their journey. Live updates will be available on trafficscotland.org and by following @trafficscotland on Twitter. Further information on the project is available on the Scotland TranServ website.


These A75 road surface improvement schemes are part of a number of such projects being scheduled by Scotland TranServ to deliver long-term benefits to commuters, local communities and businesses across South West Scotland on behalf of Transport Scotland.

Andy Fraser, Scotland TranServ’s Operating Company Representative added:

“We have scheduled this significant programme to be delivered with maximum efficiency and minimal disruption throughout. The A75 is an important economic artery for Dumfries and Galloway, with many communities and business along the route.”
