TRAVEL: A71 maintenance works planned this month
The Ayrshire Roads Alliance will carry out routine maintenance works, including grass cutting and litter picking, to sections of the A71 from Bellfield Interchange to Moorfield roundabout and to Corsehill roundabout at the North Ayrshire Council boundary.
The works will be carried out between 05:00hrs and approximately 20:00hrs on Saturday 22 August and Sunday 23 August. Due to the nature and location of the works it will be necessary to implement full carriageway closures on Saturday 22 August. Carriageway closures will be in place in both directions between the Moorfield Roundabout and the North Ayrshire Council boundary at Corsehill Roundabout. No traffic will be permitted. Full carriageway closures will also be in place on Sunday 23 August, in both directions between the Bellfield Interchange and Moorfield Roundabout. Carriageway closure will be in place to the off /on ramps to B7038 Campbell Street, Kilmarnock. No traffic will be permitted. The full carriageway closures will be signed throughout for the duration of the works and a roads diversion will be in place each way. The Ayrshire Roads Alliance, on behalf of East Ayrshire Council, apologise in advance for the inconvenience these works will inevitably cause to the travelling public in and around this area of Kilmarnock. However, these essential maintenance works are required to improve and enhance the A71 Road Corridor.
