Roadworks will see Overnight closure of the M77 southbound

Scotland TranServ, on behalf of Transport Scotland will carry out overnight resurfacing of the M77 southbound from Corkerhill to Junction 2 between 22nd and 31st July 2017.

The £370k project will address issues with potholes and structural cracking along a 1.35km stretch of the motorway. Jane Maclennan, Scotland TranServ’s Assistant Engineer said: “In order to reduce disruption as much as possible we will carry out this important resurfacing scheme overnight. This is a busy economic artery, connecting communities in East Renfrewshire and Ayrshire with Glasgow and the central belt. This short-term programme which has been scheduled in consultation with Police Scotland and local authorities, will deliver tangible, long-term benefits to the commuters and businesses who frequently use this route.” Each evening we will monitor the traffic flow on the motorway, and only once it is sufficiently quiet will we divert traffic and close the road.  The road will be opened at 6am each morning. Local diversions will be in place, however we would encourage drivers to consider alternative routes. The health and safety of our employees and of the public is of the utmost importance to Scotland TranServ and that is why it is necessary to implement traffic management in this way. This M77 road surface improvement programme is one of a number of such schemes being scheduled by Scotland TranServ to deliver long-term benefits to commuters, local communities and businesses across South West Scotland on behalf of Transport Scotland. Andy Fraser, Scotland TranServ’s Operating Company Representative added: “Across South West Scotland, we’re working on behalf of Transport Scotland to prioritise such road maintenance issues and deliver our road surface improvement projects as quickly, efficiently and safely as possible. The M77 is one of South West Scotland’s most important economic arteries, and that’s why we have scheduled this significant programme of work to be delivered with maximum efficiency and minimal disruption.” ‹ Back to News List DeliciousDiggFacebookGoogle +RedditStumble UponTwitter My Traffic ScotlandLog InMy BookmarksWhat's Near Me?Traffic InformationCurrent IncidentsRoadworksJourney TimesLive Traffic CamerasPark and RideTravel Information KiosksVariable Message SignsWeatherWeather StationsPlanning AheadPlanned RoadworksPlanned EventsInteractive MapFreightFreight InformationFreight NewsFreight What's Near Me?Freight Best Practice ScotlandNewsTraffic Scotland NewsAbout Traffic ScotlandWelcomeAbout Traffic ScotlandWhat's New on Traffic Scotland?Frequently Asked QuestionsFurther Travel InformationTravel Information LinksInformation on Public TransportInformation on Forth Road BridgeToolsLive Traffic CamerasCO2 Emission CalculatorDeveloper AreaMore ways to access traffic informationTraffic Scotland RadioMobile websiteRSS FeedsMobile applicationsTraffic Customer Care Line
