Advance Warning Of A75 Resurfacing Work – Springholm

ADVANCE WARNING OF A75 RESURFACING WORK - SPRINGHOLM

On behalf of Transport Scotland, Amey will combine two A75 resurfacing projects into one, in order to reduce disruption to the local community and businesses.

Resurfacing across a 1.5km stretch of the A75 at Bush o’ Bields, will precede the resurfacing of a 1km stretch of the trunk road between Springholm and Southpark, both of which are near Castle Douglas.

Amey will work under a daytime convoy system between 7.30am and 6pm on Wednesday 23rd, Thursday 24th and Friday the 25th of September in order to deliver this short programme of work as quickly and safely as possible.

Our operatives will follow strict physical distancing protocols throughout the project, in line with the Scottish Government’s COVID-19 guidance.

Alan Murray, Assistant Planned Maintenance Manager said:

“It is vital that we complete these works in order to maintain road safety. This is an important section of the trunk road network, and as such is used by emergency services, freight, retail and delivery traffic as part of their essential working. This short programme will be carried out under daytime convoy working, in order to reduce the impact on communities as they recover at this time.
“Amey on behalf of Transport Scotland, would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers for their patience while we deliver this important improvement project.”

Drivers are advised to allow some additional time to their journey in order to travel through the convoy traffic management system. Live trunk road information is available by visiting trafficscotland.org, or by following @trafficscotland on Twitter.
