Essential Maintenance


UPDATE (16/06/21): A full road closure of the Warrix southbound off-slip road is required to deliver this scheme on the A78 between Red Burn and Bank Street. The slip road will be closed continuously from 8pm on Sunday 20th June until 6am on Sunday 27th June 2021. Traffic will be diverted via the A78 carriageway to Newhouse Interchange and will return via the Warrix northbound off-slip road.

Amey, on behalf of Transport Scotland as part of the Network Management Contract for the South West Trunk Road Unit, are undertaking essential maintenance on the A78 between Red Burn and Bank Street Overbridge, south of Eglinton from Sunday 20th June until Sunday 27th June 2021 

This scheme, with a value of £636,035, will benefit around 7,255 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 24/7 contraflow traffic management throughout the scheme’s duration. We thank road users in advance for their patience while this essential maintenance is underway.  

To facilitate the crossover, the A78 southbound on slip from Eglinton Toll will be closed with traffic being diverted via the Eglinton Interchange northbound on slip to perform a U-turn at the Pennyburn Roundabout and return via the southbound A78. 

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.
