Essential Woodland Management On The A75 At The Dumfries Bypass Commences Monday 2nd October 2023

Amey, on behalf of Transport Scotland, are undertaking essential woodland management on the A75 at the Dumfries Bypass from Monday 2nd October until Friday 6th October 2023, between the hours of 7am and 5pm, each day. No Traffic Management will be required with all works being safely carried out in the verge.

This scheme will benefit around 13,000 vehicles using this route each day, by removing hazardous trees in close proximity to the trunk road, as well as increasing the resilience of the landscape in the face of pests, diseases and climate change.

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.
