The A78 at Skelmorlie is closed from 2000hrs Friday 4th October until 2359hrs Sunday 6th October, 2019 (or when works are complete) for resurfacing works.

As a result, McGill’s bus services 901 and 906 are unable to operate between Wemyss Bay and Largs with Stagecoach service 585 unable to serve the northern end of the route between Largs and Greenock.

Both McGill’s Clyde Flyer 901/906 services will operate from Glasgow to Wemyss Bay only, intending passengers for Largs should head to Braehead Shopping Centre for a special 904X service to Largs only.

On Saturday 5th October the special service will operate every half hour, whilst on Sunday 6th October, this service will operate hourly. A timetable for this special service can be located here: http://www.mcgillsbuses.co.uk/news/a78-to-largs–road-closure-effecting-901906-2.aspx

Stagecoach service 585 will be unable to operate between Douglas Street, Largs and Greenock during the closure due to the length of the diversion.

The road is scheduled to reopen at 2359 on Sunday 6th October 2019.
