Cumnock's Glaisnock Street is set to open today (May 31), according to East Ayrshire Council.

The saga over the stricken road and adjacent building has rumbled on for over a year-and-a-half.

The road initially closed completely to traffic in October 2021, when part of the wall of the adjacent pub building had become unstable and fell on the footpath and road.

A one-way system has been in place on the road since November 2021, with traffic unable to access Townhead Street directly via Glaisnock Street.

After much deliberation about how best to deal with the situation and issues tracking down the building's legal owner, a decision was made in August to restore the building to a safe condition and list it for sale on the market.

The £107,000 worth of works were to be carried out once a contractor was appointed.

East Ayrshire Council confirmed last week that the road was due to re-open to traffic by the end of this week.

An update now confirms that the road should be fully open by 11am today.

Council leader Douglas Reid had initially hoped that the road could be opened by the end of 2022, but that wasn't to be the case.
