A78 Fairlie – 30mph Speed Limit Extension

As part Transport Scotland’s commitment to speed management and improving safety on the network, Scotland TranServ will extend the 30mph speed limit on the A78 at the southern extent of Fairlie.

In order to complete these works as quickly and safely as possible, it will be necessary to implement a series of overnight resurfacing and relining works. Associated speed signage will also be removed, with new signage located further south.

Bruce Wade, Scotland TranServ’s Senior Site Engineer said:

“Following consultation with the local authority, key stakeholders and residents we will look to extend the 30mph speed limit from Fairlie’s south gateway, further towards Southannan Roundabout. To protect the health and safety of our workers and the motoring public, we will look to complete the works under an overnight convoy system.

“Scotland TranServ has scheduled these works for a time of low impact to the travelling public. We would advise that there may be an element of noise during the construction phase of the project. We would like to thank drivers for their patience while works are being carried out; every effort is being made to help minimise disruption.”

In order to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible, an overnight convoy system will be implemented during the following times:

8pm Wednesday 29 May to 6am Thursday 30 May8pm Thursday 30 May to 6am Friday 31 May8pm Friday 31 May to 6am Saturday 1 June
