Road­sclose for­resur­face

Hamilton Advertiser - - ALL ABOUT LANARKSHIRE - Shirley Bar­tynek

Lengthy road­works be­gan in and around Strathaven this week.

The im­prove­ment works are part of South La­nark­shire Coun­cil’s £126 mil­lion roads in­vest­ment pro­gramme.

Resur­fac­ing will be car­ried out on the A726 East Kilbride Road, B743 Muirkirk Road, the B7086 Les­ma­hagow Road and the town’s Over­ton Road.

For safety rea­sons, all of the works will re­quire the roads to be closed.

To re­duce the im­pact of the road clo­sures, and as­so­ci­ated diver­sions, the works on the A726 and Over­ton Road (school ac­cess) have been planned to take place dur­ing the Oc­to­ber school break when traf­fic flows are sig­nif­i­cantly lighter.

The timetable for the works is as fol­lows:

Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 8 to Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 12 – B743 Muirkirk Road from High Dykes to Redding Road.

Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 13 to Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 19 – A726 East Kilbride Road/strathaven Road be­tween Hap­ton Craggs cross­roads and Strathaven Golf club.

Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 15 to Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 19 – Over­ton Road.

Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 21 to Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 29 – B7086 Les­ma­hagow Road be­tween the out­skirts of Strathaven and Craig Bridge.
