Overnight and Daytime Maintenance

UPDATE (23/11/2020): Tonight's planned works on the A76 Dykefield Farm to Hollybush have been cancelled due to adverse weather.

Please note, the delivery of all schemes is subject to favourable weather conditions. 

ESSENTIAL MAINTENANCE ON A76 DYKEFIELD FARM TO HOLLYBUSH COMMENCES 23rd NOVEMBER

Essential maintenance on the A76, north of Mauchline, between Dykefield Farm and Hollybush Junction will take place overnight between 8pm and 6am, each night, from Monday 23rd November to Friday 27th November 2020.

Additional works are required for siding out of the carriageway to restore it back to full width. These works will be undertaken during dayshift 2-way Temporary Traffic Lights; Thursday 19th & Friday 20th November 2020.

This scheme, with a value of £197,553, will benefit around 12,157 vehicles using this route each day by improving the condition of the carriageway and reducing the need for more extensive maintenance in future.

A signed diversion route will be in operation for the overnight closures.

Southbound traffic on the A76 will exit at Crossroads Roundabout onto the A719 to follow the A77 at Sandyford Toll Roundabout. From here, vehicles will follow the southbound A77 to Holmston Roundabout and exit onto the A70 towards Cumnock and return to the southbound A76 at Dettingen Roundabout.

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

The work has been planned in consultation with Transport Scotland, Traffic Scotland, South Ayrshire Council and East Ayrshire Council.

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