A77 set for resurfacing works which will improve driving conditions for motorists


Motorists will soon see improvements on the A77 slip road as part of a £110,000 resurfacing and improvement programme.

The short-term schedule of work will be carried out by Scotland TranServ and will address potholes on two A77 slip roads.

Work will take place to resurface 2.7km of the Grassyards on-slip overnight on Wednesday, August 16 and Thursday, August 17.

That will be followed by work on 1.2km of the on and off -slips of the A77 Bogend Tol southbound, which will be resurfaced overnight on Friday, August 18.

Works will take place between 8pm in the evening and 6am the following morning.

Martin Gannon, Scotland TranServ’s Network area manager for Ayrshire, said: “The A77 is an important economic artery connecting communities across Ayrshire, and that’s why we’ve worked closely with Police Scotland and local authorities to schedule these works to have minimal impact on local families and businesses.

“We have additionally planned verge cutting and other routine maintenance works, which would normally require a separate closure.

“The projects will be carried out overnight in order that we can deliver them as quickly and safely as possible.”

The resurfacing programme is one of a number of such schemes scheduled across the South West on behalf of Transport Scotland.

Andy Fraser, Scotland TranServ’s operating company representative added: “Across South West Scotland, we’re working to prioritise such road maintenance issues and deliver our road surface improvement projects as quickly, efficiently and safely as possible.

“Throughout, we have scheduled this significant programme to be delivered with maximum efficiency and minimal disruption.”
