Advance Warning Of Essential Maintenance On The A77 South Of Girvan

Amey, on behalf of Transport Scotland as part of the Network Management Contract for the South-West Trunk Road Unit, are undertaking essential maintenance on the A77 at Shalloch Mill, south of Girvan, from Friday 18th November until Monday 21st November 2022.

This scheme, with a value of £222,229, will benefit around 4,073 vehicles using this route each day, by improving the condition of the carriageway and reducing the need for more extensive maintenance in the future.

The work will require a full weekend closure of this section of the carriageway, from 7pm on Friday 18th November until 6am on Monday 21st November 2022. A signed diversion will be in operation. We thank road users for their patience and cooperation whilst these essential works take place.

The diversion will operate as follows: southbound traffic will exit the A77 at Shallochpark Roundabout onto the A714 and follow to North Barnkirk, turning right onto the unclassified road to South Barnkirk and then turning right onto the A75 and continuing westbound towards Stranraer before taking the A751 to Innermessan and rejoining the A77 northbound towards Cairnryan. Northbound traffic will take the A77 southbound and turn left onto the A751 then left onto the A75 eastbound towards Newton Stewart, turning left onto the unclassified road at South Barnkirk then left onto the A714 at North Barnkirk and following to the A77 Shallochpark Roundabout.

Access for emergency service vehicles will be maintained throughout these works.

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

Please note, all schemes are weather dependent and may be cancelled or rescheduled if weather conditions are not favourable.
