ESSENTIAL MAINTENANCE ON A737 DALGARVEN COMMENCES 4th DECEMBER
Essential maintenance on the A737 between Dalgarven and the Rail Bridge will take place from 8pm Friday 4th December to 6am Monday 7th December 2020.
This scheme requires a full weekend closure of the A737 at this location, with a signed diversion route in operation. Local and emergency vehicle access will be maintained throughout the work. Routine maintenance work to resurface the carriageway at the A737 Wilsons Auction Mart will be incorporated into this work, on the 4th, 5th and 6th of December, between 7pm and 7am, each night.
Northbound traffic will travel west through Byres Road, Townhead and then follow the A738 to Stevenston Road to reach Pennyburn Roundabout. From here, vehicles will join the westbound A78 to Sharphill Roundabout, and continue on the B714 to Kilwinning Road. Traffic will turn right to stay on the B714 to Hillend Roundabout, where it will re-join the northbound A737.
Southbound traffic will follow the same diversion in the opposite direction.
This scheme, with a value of £194,000, will benefit around 8,000 vehicles using this route each day, by improving the condition of the carriageway and reducing the need for more extensive maintenance in future.
This scheme has been planned in consultation with Transport Scotland, Traffic Scotland, the emergency services, bus companies, local businesses, Network Rail, utilities companies and North Ayrshire Council.
Please note, all schemes are weather dependent and may be cancelled or rescheduled if weather conditions are not favourable.
