A77 Maybole bypass progress
As a further sign of the Scottish Government’s progress in delivering the A77 Maybole Bypass, supplementary ground investigation work will get underway this week.
The contract awarded to Causeway Geotech will see work carried out adjacent to the road and should not cause any disruption for road users.
The outcome of the ground investigation will provide prospective bidders with more detailed information to enable them to bid competitively for the main contract -estimated at £30m - to construct the 5 kilometre bypass and associated junctions.
A Transport Scotland spokesperson said:
“The ground investigation work is needed to complete important information gathering on the existing ground conditions along the preferred route to progress our plans to construct a bypass around Maybole.
This contract award brings us another step closer to delivering improvements for the local community and road users, including those travelling longer distances to the key ports of Stranraer and Cairnryan.”
