Essential Structural Investigations On The A77 At Ballantrae Commence Monday 13th March 2023 

Amey, on behalf of Transport Scotland as part of the Network Management Contract for the South-West Trunk Road Unit, are undertaking essential structural investigations on the A77 at Ballantrae from Monday 13th March until Saturday 18th March 2023, between the hours of 8am and 5pm, each day.  

The investigations shall aid the development of the forthcoming refurbishment scheme which will eventually benefit around 3,400 vehicles using this route each day, by ensuring the safe operation of the bridge and reducing the potential for more extensive maintenance in the future.

The work will be carried out using phased closures of both the northbound and southbound carriageways of the A77, with daytime temporary traffic lights in place. We thank road users for their patience and co-operation while this essential work takes place.


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.
