Advanced Notice Of Road Closure – A77 Stair Drive Stranraer

Stair Drive in Stranraer is set to be closed for five days in early August as part of Transport Scotland’s strategic trunk road management programme, Scotland TranServ will resurface the A77 at Stair Drive in Stranraer.


This 200m stretch of carriageway is the link between the A77 and A75 in Dumfries and Galloway, and is a residential street.


Alan Murray, Scotland TranServ’s Principal Roads Designer said:


We are working with the local community to deliver this short programme of work as quickly and efficiently as possible. This section of the trunk road is lined by houses, and we will provide assistance to residents in order that these works have minimal impact on them during their day-to-day activities.
“The project of deep resurfacing will take five days from start to finish, and we hope to keep disruption down. The route will be clearly signed and we will work with ferry companies in advance to promote this message further to passengers.”


Works will start at 8am on Monday the 6th and be completed by 6am on Friday the 10th of August. In order to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible it will be necessary to implement a full closure of the A77 at Stair Drive. Special arrangement have been made with resident to allow them easy access/exit from their homes throughout the works.


On-street parking on Stair Drive will be suspended throughout the duration of the works. This will ensure the safety of our workforce and road users alike.


The A75 London Rd Junction will also be resurfaced, as such access from A77 Station Street/Edinburgh Road will be restricted for one day only.


Further information on the short diversion route is available on the Scotland TranServ website.


Special arrangements are already in place for emergency services vehicles to be escorted through the works. We would advise drivers to allow additional time for their journeys. Full updates are available by checking trafficscotland.org, or by following @trafficscotland on Twitter.


This short programme of work is one of a number of such schemes that we have planned for the A77 over the next few months.

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


“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. This programme of work has therefore been scheduled to be delivered with maximum efficiency and minimal disruption.”
