Amey, on behalf of Transport Scotland as part of the Network Management Contract for the South-West Trunk Road Unit, are undertaking the essential resurfacing of 890m of the A75 east of Collin from Friday 18th August until Monday 21st August 2023.
This scheme will benefit around 1,300 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 from 8pm on Friday 18th August until 6am on Monday 21st August 2023, and a signed diversion will be in place. We thank road users for their patience and co-operation while this essential work takes place.
The signed diversion will operate as follows:
Eastbound traffic will leave the A75 at Brownrigg Roundabout taking the A709 to Lockerbie, then south on the B723 to Annan and return north on the B721 to re-join the A75. Westbound traffic will take the diversion route in reverse. HGVs using the M6 and A74(M) will be diverted via the A74(M) at Junction 17 to avoid Hoddom Bridge.
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.
