TRAVEL: A77 Haggstone Climbing Lane planned roadworks
As part of Transport Scotland’s strategic trunk road management programme, Scotland TranServ will shortly resurface 2km of the A77 Haggstone Climbing Lane, north of Cairnryan.
In order to complete this £450k project as quickly and safely as possible, it will be necessary to implement a convoy traffic management system from Sunday 11th of August until Wednesday the 17th of August.
Adam Sarwar, Scotland TranServ’s project design lead on the resurfacing programme said:
“We have been working with the local community and key stakeholders to carefully schedule these important works for minimal impact on the area. Following our consultation, it was decided that works should be programmed for later in the summer in order to minimise disruption to those attending the Skiffie World championships in July.
“Consultation has also been carried out with local authorities, emergency services and businesses in order to reduce the impact on communities, freight traffic and holidaymakers using this important route. We would like to thank drivers for their patience while these works are completed.”
In order to complete these works as quickly and safely as possible, it will be necessary to operate a 24 hour convoy traffic management system during the following times: 8pm on Sunday 11th of August until 6am on Wednesday the 17th of August Drivers, and particularly those using the Cairnryan ferry services, are advised to allow plenty of additional time for their journeys.
