A Cumnock street is set to close for two days later this month.

Lugar Street will be shut off to allow Scottish Water work to be carried out.

Scottish Water and The Ayrshire Roads Alliance (ARA) have agreed for the closure to take place from between 8am and 9am on Monday, February 26.

ARA say the work is expected to be completed by 23.59 on Tuesday, February 27.

Scottish Water added that it is anticipated the repair will be completed and the road reopened by Wednesday, February 28.

To minimise traffic disruption, a reversal of the one-way system between The Square and Barrhill Road will be in operation throughout the duration of the works.

This means drivers can still access Glaisnock Street and Townhead Street from Barrhill Road.

A Scottish Water spokesperson said: “We would like to apologise for any disruption these essential works may cause.

“A road closure is the only option to allow us to carry them out safely. We like to thank residents and road users for their patience and understanding.”
