A77 Ballantrae roadworks rescheduled for one month before Christmas!


Following extensive consultation with the local community works to improve the road surface on the A77 at Ardwell have been rescheduled and are now set to commence on Friday 25 November 2016.


Scotland TranServ, which manages and maintains south west Scotland’s motorways and trunk roads on behalf of Transport Scotland, including the A77, will carry out the scheme to resurface the route between Girvan and Ballantrae.

To protect the safety of motorists and road users alike, a full closure is required to be in place with a signed local diversions in operation throughout the works. Operatives will work around the clock from 8.00pm on Friday 25 November to 6.00am on Monday 28 November to ensure the works are completed in the shortest time possible, reducing disruption to road users.

Scotland TranServ’s operating company representative, Andy Fraser said:

“We have listened to feedback from the local community regarding the timing of the works, however this essential work must be carried out to ensure the longevity of the road surface on this route.

“We have made every effort to programme these works over the shortest period of time, therefore reducing disruption to road users; however motorists particularly those use the ferry ports should plan their journeys accordingly.”
