Drivers are set to be faced with more delays along the A76 from tomorrow (Feb 27).

Work will begin once again to repair parts of the Howford Bridge, with temporary traffic lights being used whilst the works are carried out.

Northbound works took place last year and were completed just before Christmas, after being delayed a number of times.

Preparation works took place on the bridge at the start of the year, as drivers vented their frustrations at the seemingly never-ending temporary traffic lights on the road.

Now southbound work will begin and will last for around five weeks. However, this is weather dependent.

The work is set to last until Friday, April 7.

A spokesperson for Amey said: "Phase two of bridge deck repairs on the A76 at Howford Bridge are programmed to commence on Monday February 27, 2023.

"The repairs to the southbound carriageway are programmed to complete on Friday, April 7 2023. Phase one of repairs to the northbound carriageway were completed in December 2022.

"This maintenance is weather dependent and may be postponed or extended if weather conditions are unfavourable."
