Road users are set to benefit from £185k of resurfacing works on the A737 Dalgarven at High Monk Castle Farm, south of Dalry beginning on Friday 9 December 2016.
Scotland TranServ, on behalf of Transport Scotland, will carry out 940m of resurfacing over one weekend to minimise traffic disruption on a road which is used by 15,000 motorists each day.
The works will take place 24 hours a day from 8.00pm on Friday 9 December to 6.00am on Monday 12 December. With safety of paramount importance, a total closure of the A737 in both directions will be required from the Junction of B714 to The Museum of Ayrshire Country Life and Costume. A local diversion will also be in operation.
Andy Fraser, operating company representative, Scotland TranServ said: “This resurfacing scheme is vital to ensure we prolong the lifespan of the road surface, benefiting road users for years to come.
“We have considered alternative methods and timings for delivering these works, but at this particular location they can only be safely carried out under a full road closure however local access will be maintained during this time.”
