A77 Slip Road Resurfacing works planned!

Scotland TranServ, working on behalf of Transport Scotland will carry out a short £110k resurfacing programme to address potholes on two A77 slip roads.

Work will take place to resurface 2.7km of the A77 Grassyards On Slip overnight on Wednesday 16th and Thursday 17th of August. Meanwhile 1.2km of the On and Off Slips on the A77 Bogend Toll South Bound will be resurfaced overnight on Friday 18th of August.

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.”

Works will take place between 8pm in the evening and 6am the following morning, with traffic management implemented only once monitored traffic flow is sufficiently low.
