50 YEARS AGO

Ayrshire Post - - MEMORY LANE -

Work in cre­at­ing a dual car­riage­way in King Street, Ayr, is now so far ad­vanced in the eastern and ma­jor stretch that mo­torists are now able to use it freely.

In­deed the set­ting up of a “Main Road” sign at the junc­tion with Ge­orge Street is the be­gin­ning of an ed­uca­tive process to­wards en­cour­ag­ing the pub­lic in favour of the ul­ti­mate pur­pose that Ge­orge Street will be closed to traf­fic and the use of River Street se­verely lim­ited.

The changeover will be grad­ual, due in part to the fact that so many busi­nesses ex­ist there.
