Essential Maintenance

ESSENTIAL MAINTENANCE ON THE A77 BURNSIDE COMMENCES FRIDAY 19TH FEBRUARY 

Essential maintenance on the A77 between Burnside and Dowhill is taking place from Friday 19th February until Friday 26th February 2021, between 8pm and 6am, each night.  

This scheme, with a value of approximately £280,000, will normally benefit around 3600 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 overnight road closures at this location affecting both directions of the carriageway. Emergency vehicle access will be maintained throughout the scheme’s duration.  

A77 northbound traffic will be diverted onto the B741 and will proceed on this route for five miles and will then turn right to remain on the B741 and follow signs for Dailly. Traffic will continue through Dailly and then turn left to stay on the B741 for a further four miles. At the fork, traffic will keep left to join the B7023 northbound and will turn left at the following junction to travel towards Maybole. Traffic will turn left at the A77 Junction to join the A77 Kirkoswald Road, where traffic can either return to Dowhill or continue on the A77 in a northerly direction.  

Southbound traffic will follow the same diversion but in the reverse order.  

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.
