A78 Dutchhouse to Pennyburn Vegetation Management

Rolling single off-peak, daytime lane closure between 9.30am and 4pm each working day from Monday the 12th to Saturday the 31st of October

On behalf of Transport Scotland, Amey will deliver a rolling programme of vegetation management to help improve visibility and the general upkeep of the A78 between the Dutchhouse Roundabout and
Pennyburn, near
Prestwick.

In order to deliver this programme of work, it will be necessary to implement a rolling lane closure of the A78, to suit the daily location of the project.

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

Alan Murray, Amey’s Assistant Planned Maintenance Manager said:

“This is an important section of the 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, improve visibility and manage any roadside litter. Works will be carried out under daytime, off-peak lane management.

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

To reduce the impact on communities and businesses using the A78, the vegetation management scheme will be delivered under the following traffic management arrangement:

  • Rolling single off-peak, daytime lane closure between 9.30am and 4pm each working day from Monday the 12th to Saturday the 31st of October
