A subsequent overnight closure will also be required on that Monday evening, from 8pm to 6am on Tuesday 11th to finish the works.
Lee Donnelly, Scotland TranServ’s Assistant Engineer said:
“In order to keep disruption to an absolute minimum for commuters and businesses using this route through the week, we have scheduled the works to take place over the weekend and at weekends when traffic flows are far reduced. The planning of this short programme has involved local authorities, emergency services and key stakeholders.
“Scotland TranServ is carrying out a number of such projects to improve the quality of the A77 trunk road surface, with a number of other such projects to follow. Where possible we are planning these works to have minimal impact of the travelling public.”
In order to carry out these works the project team will require to close the A77 Northbound between Spittalhill and Bellfield Interchange over the following times:
· 8pm Friday 7th September to 6am Monday 10th September
