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 A75 at Muil Farm, between Barlae and Kirkcowan from Monday 18th July until Friday 29th July 2022. Work will take place between the hours of 7am and 7pm, each day.

This scheme, with a value of £424,500, will benefit around 4,390 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 be carried out using a daytime convoy operation at this location. We thank road users for their patience while this essential maintenance is underway.

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.
