A75 To Be Closed for Repairs – A75/A711 Kirkcudbright Junction to Barncrosh

Scotland TranServ, working on behalf of Transport Scotland, will carry out road resurfacing works between the A75/A711 Kirkcudbright junction and Barncrosh from Friday 23rd to Wednesday 28th June.

The £340k project will repair potholes and structural cracking on a 700m section of the A75, delivering tangible, long-term improvements for communities and businesses adjacent to this main route through Dumfries and Galloway.

Rajan Singh, Scotland TranServ’s Project Manager for the scheme said:

“We realise that this is an important economic artery for South West Scotland, and that is why we’re making every effort to reduce disruption as much as possible. Work will take place at the weekend and overnight in order to minimise the impact on the local community and businesses.”

The health and safety of our workers and of drivers is of the utmost importance to Scotland TranServ, and that is why it will be necessary to implement a full weekend closure followed by midweek overnight closures in order to carry out this project as quickly, efficiently and safely as possible. All traffic will be diverted along the A711 and A762.

The A75 road closures include:

  • 7pm Friday 23rd June to 6am Monday 26th June, continuous 24 hours
  • Further two overnight closures will be implemented on Monday 26th June and Tuesday 27th June between 7pm to 6am respectively


A three-way traffic signal system will be implemented at the junction with Tongland bridge (A711/A762) in order to control large vehicle turning movements.

This A75 road surface improvement programme is one of a number of such schemes 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:

“The A75 is one of South West Scotland’s most important economic arteries. Across South West Scotland, we’re working on behalf of Transport Scotland to prioritise such road maintenance issues and deliver our road surface improvement projects as quickly, efficiently and safely as possible. Working with Police Scotland and the Local Authority, Scotland TranServ has scheduled this significant programme of work to be delivered with maximum efficiency and minimal disruption.”
