As part of Transport Scotland’s strategic trunk road management programme, Scotland TranServ will resurface 2km of the A75 from Drumflower to Planting End, between Dunragit and Castle Kennedy, there will be a convoy traffic management system in place during the works starting this weekend Saturday the 22nd of June.
In order to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible, it will be necessary to implement a daytime convoy system between Saturday 22nd and Friday 28th of June.
Anthony Chambers, Scotland TranServ’s design lead on the project said:
“We’ve been working with the local authority, emergency services and key stakeholders to carefully plan this short programme of work. Working under a daytime convoy, we will be able to deliver the project as quickly and safely as possible, with minimum disruption to local commuters and businesses. We are also conscious of delivering the programme ahead of the busy holiday period, while trying to reduce the impact on freight traffic.”
The convoy traffic management system will be in operation during the following times:
- 7am to 7pm each day between Saturday 22nd and Friday 28th of June
Alan Murray, Scotland TranServ’s Principal Roads Design Engineer added:
“This is one of a number of such projects being planned in association with key local stakeholders over the next few weeks. In the weeks ahead, on behalf of Transport Scotland we are looking to deliver more than £1.3million in road surface improvements to the A75. This is in addition to the £3.7million delivered during 2018/19.”
Drivers, particularly those heading for the ferry ports at Cairnryan, are advised to allow some extra time for their journeys. Live trunk road updates are available by visiting trafficscotland.org or by following @trafficscotland on Twitter.
