11 January 2021

Lighting Upgrades


Work to improve the lighting on the A78 will take place at various locations on the A78, between Monday 11th January until Friday 16th April 2021.

These schemes, with a combined value of £300,000, will benefit road users by replacing underground cabling and providing a series of electrical upgrades to the lighting system. This work will ensure the system continues to conform to wiring regulations.

The work will take place in phases at locations in Greenock, Wemyss Bay, Fairlie, West Kilbride and Mountfode Roundabout; between 9.30amd and 4pm, using single lane closures and temporary traffic lights, as deemed appropriate. Temporary speed restrictions will be in place Monday to Friday between 7am and 9.30am and 4pm and 6.30pm.

No work will be undertaken on public holidays, holiday weekends or when local events are scheduled.

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