A77 South of Ayr - Essential Maintenance Works

Published date : 21 Feb 2018

Welcome news for A77 motorists.

A77 South of Ayr – Essential Road Maintenance Works  

Due to the prolonged and inclement winter period, the condition of the A77 has deteriorated leading to numerous complaints from road users. Transport Scotland, on behalf of the Scottish Ministers, have recently redirected budgets towards carrying out these essential road repairs. To address the issues, Scotland TranServ are planning to accelerate construction of major road maintenance schemes on the A77. 

Due to the urgent nature of the road repairs and the oncoming peak Easter holiday season, the period of consultation has unavoidably been reduced. Due to limited available road width to carry out our operations it is necessary to close the A77 so as to ensure the safety of our workforce and traveling public alike. Scotland TranServ propose to carry out our operations at Kirkoswald under overnight road closure commencing on Monday 19th March 2018. An additional phase will also be required to facilitate works north of Kirkoswald commencing on 27th April 2018.

The associated phases, location, and short description of our proposed maintenance schemes are as follows:

  • Phase 1 – Road resurfacing A77 Kirkoswald under overnight road closures;
  • Phase 2 – Road resurfacing A77 North of Straids pass, A77 Kennedys Pass & A77 Auchencrosh Farm. Road retexture A77 Kilphin to Auchairne under a weekend closure from 23 to 26 March;
  • Phase 3 – Road resurfacing A77 north of Kirkoswald under one weekend closure with two subsequent overnight road closures.

Our resurfacing works will address approximately 16,000m2 of defective road pavement and our mechanical retexturing operation will improve approximately 10,000mof road surface friction.
