ESSENTIAL MAINTENANCE ON THE A75 BETWEEN OLD MILITARY ROAD AND BENFIELD COMMENCES SATURDAY 2ND JULY 

📣 UPDATE (28/06/22): Preparatory works are now required overnight on the A75 for maintenance between Old Military Road and Benfield. These will take place on Tuesday 28th June and Wednesday 29th June 2022. Main works will take place from Saturday 2nd July until Friday 15th July 2022 and details remain as published in the main body text below. 

📣 UPDATE (13/06/22): Upcoming maintenance on the A75 between Old Military Road and Benfield has been extended for 5 days and will now complete on Friday 15th July 2022. 

Amey, on behalf of Transport Scotland as part of the Network Management Contract for the South-West Trunk Road Unit, are undertaking essential maintenance on the A75 between Old Military Road, south-west of Newton Stewart, and Benfield from Saturday 2nd July until Friday 15th July 2022, between the hours of 7am and 7pm, each day. 

This scheme, with a value of £541,183, will benefit around 4,400 vehicles using this route each day, by improving the condition of the carriageway and reducing the need for more extensive maintenance in the future. 

The work will be carried out using a daytime convoy that will be in place between 7am and 7pm each day. Temporary traffic lights will be installed outwith these hours to facilitate the cooling of deeper sections of treatment.  

Road users are advised to allow extra time to complete any journeys and are thanked for their patience.   

Access for emergency service vehicles will be maintained throughout these works. 

Our operatives will follow strict physical distancing and hygiene protocols throughout the programme, in line with the Scottish Government’s COVID-19 guidance. 

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