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 A76 at Trigony House, between Thornhill and Closeburn, for six nights from Sunday 21st May until Friday 26th May 2023.
This work will take place between the hours of 8pm and 6am, each night. There will also be daytime Temporary Traffic Lights to allow for the cooling of deeper sections of material. Traffic management will be removed by 6am on Saturday 27th May 2023.
This scheme will benefit around 5,500 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 overnight road closures 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:
Northbound traffic will exit the A76 at Newbridge onto the B729 and will continue for 11.5 miles before turning right onto the A702 Clone Road. Traffic will continue on the A702 for 6 miles before re-joining the A76 at Thornhill. Southbound traffic will follow the same route in reverse order. Temporary traffic lights will be in place at the single-track Nith 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.
