TRAVEL: A77 Rosemount to Symington

Scotland TranServ, as part of Transport Scotland’s strategic trunk road management programme, will shortly resurface 810m of the A77 Northbound between Rosemount and Symington.

In order to complete this £189k programme of work as quickly and safely as possible, it will be necessary to implement a weekend northbound closure of the trunk road between Friday 23rd and Monday 26th of August.

Dayle Gillespie, Scotland TranServ’s project design lead on the resurfacing programme said:

“Scotland TranServ has consulted local authorities, emergency services and key stakeholders in the scheduling of this important programme of work. In order to minimise disruption to the community and businesses, the project has been scheduled for delivery across a weekend.

“To protect the safety of our workers and the travelling public, it is necessary to close the northbound carriageway while works are carried out. Local diversions will be in place. We would like to take this opportunity to thank drivers for their patience while these necessary works are completed.”

In order to complete this short programme of works as efficiently and effectively as possible, while keeping disruption to a minimum for commuters and businesses it will be necessary to close the northbound carriageway during the following times:

  • 8pm on Friday 23rd until 6am on Monday 26th of August

Local diversions will be in place throughout these works. We would advise drivers, particularly those using Prestwick Airport to allow plenty of additional time for their journeys.
