Road users are set to benefit from over £75k of resurfacing works on the A75 at The Glen which is located west of Dumfries.

Scotland TranServ, on behalf of Transport Scotland, will carry out the resurfacing works from Friday 7 until Monday 10 October 2016.

Works will be carried out in both directions, therefore, a total closure will be in place from Garroch Roundabout to West of Springholm from 5.00pm on Friday evening until 06.00am on Monday morning.

Andy Fraser, operating company representative, Scotland TranServ said:
“This essential maintenance scheme is vital to ensuring we prolong the lifespan of the road surface benefiting almost 5,000 road users using the A75 each day.

“We are doing everything we can do minimise disruption by carrying these works out over the weekend, however, we would advise motorists to plan ahead and leave plenty of time for their journeys.”
