A77 Ryan Bay Resurfacing

As part of Transport Scotland’s strategic trunk road management programme, Amey is resurfacing 2.1km of the A77 at Ryan Bay, north of Stranraer.

In order to resurface this section of trunk road, it will be necessary to implement a series of daytime convoy operations between Saturday the 17th of October and Friday the 13th of November.

Additional closures will also be required on the main A77 carriageway between the A751 and Stair Drive during this time, with local diversions in place.

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

Tony Chambers, Amey’s project design lead on the scheme said:

“Amey would firstly like to take this opportunity, on behalf of Transport Scotland, to thank our customers for their patience while we deliver this important improvement project.

“This is a busy section of the South West Scotland trunk road network, and as such is used by emergency services, freight, retail and delivery traffic as part of their essential working. It is vital that we complete these works in order to maintain road safety. Works will be carried out under daytime contraflow working, in order to reduce the impact on communities and businesses as they recover at this time.

“We have implemented many new working practices across our own workforce and those of our supply chain partners as we work towards the future delivery of our new maintenance contract. Thorough risk assessments have been carried out as we take a lead in the delivery of trunk road maintenance.”

Works will be delivered under the following traffic management system:

  • 24/7 convoy control between Ryan Bay and Beoch - Saturday the 17th of October and Friday the 13th of November
  • Total closure between the A751 and Stair Drive - Saturday the 17th of October and Friday the 13th of November

Local diversions will be in place throughout this programme of work. Drivers are advised to allow some additional time for their journeys.
