An extensive programme of works for East Ayrshire’s roads network has been set out by the council, including footway surfacing in Cumnock and street lighting improvements in Drongan.

The £11.6million programme includes significant maintenance on A, B, C and U class roads. U class roads are urban roads and include residential areas in the main towns and villages of East Ayrshire where maintenance of thousands of metres of road will take place.

Footway surfacing will take place in a number of locations including Cumnock and Well Road, Auchinleck. Lighting improvements will take place in Drongan and Dalrymple and 28 bridges and culverts have been identified for works with £3m being invested over the next year on their repair, maintenance or refurbishment.

Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT) has also confirmed funding for projects within East Ayrshire for 2021/22.

This includes £1.3million for improvements to Kilmarnock bus station and £40,000 to design a cycle route from Crosshouse to Dundonald

The council assures that this programme of works will help to ensure roads are maintained to a high standard.
