Resurfacing works will take place on the A76 between Dettingen Roundabout and the Lugar Water near Cumnock this week.

In order to deliver this project as quickly and safely as possible, it will be necessary to implement a weekend closure of the trunk road in this localised area, from the evening of Friday, October 2 until the early hours of Monday, October 5.

The works will be delivered under a full weekend closure of the trunk road from 8pm on Friday, October 2 until 6am on Monday, October 5.

Drivers are advised to add 30 minutes onto their journey time in order to complete the diversion route.

Special arrangements will be made for emergency service vehicles during this time.

No extra measures will be made for windfarm traffic or other abnormal loads.

Darren Mitchell, Amey’s Senior Structural Maintenance Engineer said last week:

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