The work will being on Monday 21st October 2019 and will include the upgrade of the traffic signals, new footways and resurfacing of the carriageway. The work should be completed by the end of November 2019.

Jane Maclennan, Scotland TranServ’s Road Safety Engineer said:“We are working in consultation with the local authority, emergency services and key stakeholders to schedule this essential programme of work for minimal impact on the local community and businesses. We will keep customers updated on the programme of works through a variety of avenues.

“Scotland TranServ will maintain access to homes and businesses throughout this project. We intend completing the works on each corner of the junction a week at a time, including resurfacing of the footways. The project will conclude with the weekend closure of the A77 carriageway to completely resurface this stretch of the trunk road.”

In order to complete this programme of work as quickly and safely as possible, it will be necessary for Scotland Transerv to work between the hours of:

  • 7am to 7pm each day for four weeks from Monday 21st October
  • 8pm Friday 22nd to 6am Monday 25th November, resurfacing of A77 trunk road

All trunk road traffic will be diverted from Shallochpark Roundabout via Coalpots Road and the B734 to Bridgemill Roundabout, from the 21st of October until works are completed.

Local traffic for Girvan will be signed ‘Business as Usual’ for deliveries, shoppers and residents.  During the works, the car park at Hamilton Street / Old Street will remain open – however, an area will be sectioned off for use as a site compound. Access will be maintained throughout for emergency service vehicles.
