ACTIVE TRAVEL IMPROVEMENTS ON THE A77 BETWEEN BOGEND TOLL AND SYMINGTON COMMENCE MONDAY 7TH NOVEMBER 2022 

 

Amey, on behalf of Transport Scotland as part of the Network Management Contract for the South-West Trunk Road Unit, are undertaking active travel improvements on the A77 between the Bogend Toll and Symington Junctions from Monday 7th November 2022 for approximately 15 weeks. This work will take place between 8pm and 6am each night. The construction will stop over the Christmas/New Year holiday period for 2 weeks, during which time the site will be made safe and access maintained for all users. 

This scheme will benefit existing pedestrians and cyclists who currently use this section of the local cycle network each day by widening the existing shared footway to better align with Transport Scotland’s Cycling by Design guidance. The scheme will also encourage more users to walk, cycle and wheel for health, leisure and commuting purposes which aligns with the Scottish Government’s and Transport Scotland’s objectives to cut carbon emissions by providing higher quality active travel infrastructure.  

The work will be carried out using overnight closures of the nearside lane on the A77 northbound carriageway between the Bogend Toll and Symington junctions. There will be no need for a signed diversion, and we thank road users for their patience and cooperation while these essential improvements take place.  

Pedestrian/cyclist access of the shared footway will be maintained throughout the works with pedestrians and cyclists being escorted where footway closures are required. 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.
