Advanced Warning Of Convoy System During A75 Resurfacing Work At Ringford & Mollance


Scotland TranServ, on behalf of Transport Scotland will combine two resurfacing schemes on the A75 at Ringford and Mollance, between Castle Douglas and Gatehouse of Fleet Starting on Tuesday the 23rd of April Until Saturday 4th of May. 

In order to complete this £620k investment as quickly as possible, it will be necessary to implement daytime convoy systems between the 23rd April and 4th May.

Dayle Gillespie, Scotland TranServ’s lead designer on the programme of work said:

This is a significant resurfacing programme to improve nearly 2km of this busy trunk road connecting the Irish ferry port of Cairnryan with Scotland’s central belt and the north of England.  In order to keep disruption to a minimum for commuters, businesses and freight traffic alike, Scotland TranServ will deliver these trunk road investments under daytime convoy.
“We have been working in consultation with the local authority, emergency services and key stakeholders to carefully schedule these works. This is one of a number of such investments being delivered by Scotland TranServ to improve the A75 carriageway.”

In order to protect the safety of our workers and the travelling public, this short programme of works will be carried out under daytime convoy during the following times:

  • A75 Ringford to Tarff Valley – 7am to 7pm each day between Tuesday 23rd April and Wednesday 1st  May
  • A75 Mollance resurfacing – 7am to 7pm each day between Thursday 2nd and Saturday 4th of May

Alan Murray, Scotland TranServ’s Principal Roads Design Engineer added:

“Over the next few months Scotland TranServ, on behalf of Transport Scotland will invest more than a million pounds to improve the surface of the A75. This is in addition to more than £2 million of investment that has been completed in the last 6 months.”
