Essential Maintenance


Essential maintenance work will take place on the A738 Stevenston Road to Pennyburn from 8pm on Friday 23rd April until 6am on Monday 26th April 2021, followed by overnight road closures (8pm-6am each night) from Monday 26th April until Wednesday 28th April 2021. 

The scheme, with a value of £175,000 will benefit road users by continuing to ensure the safe and reliable operation of the trunk road at this location and reducing the need for future maintenance. 

This work requires a combination of a full weekend closure and overnight road closures of the A738 at this location, with a signed diversion route in operation. 

Westbound traffic will be directed east along the A738 (Stevenston Road, Townhead and Byres Road) to the A737 south (HowgateLauchlan Way, Bridgend and Irvine Road) to Eglinton Interchange and the A78 westbound to Pennyburn Roundabout where this diversion will end. 

Eastbound traffic will follow the same diversion in the opposite direction. 

A local diversion route via Pennyburn Road will be used to provide access from the north to and from Whitehirst Park, access to West Doura Way will also be gained from the north via Byres Road. The retail/restaurant area off Pennyburn Roundabout will be maintained however no through access will be permitted beyond the fire station during the closure times. 

This scheme has been planned in consultation with Transport Scotland, Traffic Scotland, the emergency services, Kilwinning Community Fire Station, Kilwinning Ambulance Station, Strathclyde Passenger Transport and North Ayrshire Council. 

Please note, all schemes are weather dependent and may be cancelled or rescheduled if weather conditions are not favourable.
