TRAVEL: A77 Dalquat to Minnybae

On behalf of Transport Scotland, Scotland TranServ will resurface 850m of the A77 between Dalquat and Minnybae, south of Kirkoswald.

In order to complete this £260k as quickly and safely as possible, it will be necessary for Scotland TranServ to implement a weekend closure of the trunk road, from Friday 6th until Monday 9th of September.

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

“We’ve been working in consultation with local authorities, emergency services and key stakeholders to carefully schedule these works, reducing the potential disruption on the local community and businesses. Because of the nature of the trunk road in this area, it will be necessary to carry out the works under a weekend closure.

“Diversions will be in place throughout this short programme of work. Motorists are advised to allow plenty of additional time for their journeys, particularly those heading for ferries at Cairnryan. We would like to thank drivers for their patience while this important resurfacing programme is carried out.”

To protect the safety of our worker and motorists, it will be necessary to complete these works under a weekend closure during the following times:

  • 8pm on Friday 6th until 6am on Monday 9th of September

Diversions will be in place throughout this short programme of work. Further information is available on the Scotland TranServ website.
