Essential Maintenance On The A77 Commences Friday 10th February 2023 

Amey, on behalf of Transport Scotland as part of the Network Management Contract for the South-West Trunk Road Unit, are undertaking essential resurfacing on the A77 at various locations from Friday 10th February until Wednesday 15th February 2023.

This work will be carried out in three sections:

  • Section One involves the reconstruction of approximately 529m of the A77 at Lendalfoot, between Carleton Crescent and the southern gateway of the village.
  • Section Two will involve the reconstruction of approximately 545m of the A77 at Kennedy’s Pass.
  • Section Three will involve surface patching of smaller areas of the A77 carriageway at Ardwell Farm.

This scheme will benefit around 8,000 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 full weekend closure between 7pm on Friday 10th February and 6am on Monday 13th February 2023, and two overnight road closures on Monday 13th February and Tuesday 14th February from 7pm6am. A signed diversion will be in operation. We thank road users for their patience and co-operation while this essential work takes place.


The signed 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 re-joining 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.

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