As part of Transport Scotland’s strategic trunk road management programme, Scotland TranServ will carry out the resurfacing of 2km of the A75 Eastbound dual carriageway at The Glen near Dumfries.

In order to complete the £320k programme of works as quickly and safely as possible, it will be necessary to close this section of eastbound carriageway for the full weekend from Friday 24th to Monday 27th of August, with a series of overnight closures following that until Thursday 30th August.

Dayle Gillespie, Scotland TranServ’s Lead Designer said:

“We’ve been working with local authorities, emergency services and major stakeholders to schedule this short programme of works to cause minimal disruption to the travelling public. We’ve also worked around the peak local holiday season and taken key events into consideration in the programming.
“This is an important programme of works that will involve the resurfacing of 2km of carriageway. So that we can complete this work as quickly and safely as possible, we need to close the eastbound carriageway of this stretch of the A75. The project will deliver long-term improvements to the trunk road for local commuters and businesses alike.”

In order to carry out these works the Eastbound carriageway will be closed on the following dates:

  • 7pm Friday 24th to 6am Monday 27th August
  • 7pm Monday 27th to 6am Tuesday 28th August
  • 7pm Tuesday 28th to 6am Wednesday 29th August
  • 7pm Wednesday 29th to 6am Thursday 30th August

The Westbound carriageway will remain open, however fast lane closures will be in place during these times for worker safety.

For one night only, both Westbound and Eastbound A75 will also require full closure from 7pm Wednesday 29th to 6am Thursday 30th August.
