Resur­fac­ing plans for A75

The Galloway News - - NEWS -

More than £600,000 is to be spent resur­fac­ing stretches of the A75 in the com­ing weeks.

A sec­tion from Kel­ton Farm to Bridge of Dee and another stretch from Ring­ford to Tarff Val­ley are set to be re­paired, with a con­voy sys­tem in place dur­ing the day to pro­tect work­ers.

It’s part of more than £4 mil­lion that Trans­port Scot­land and Scot­land TranServ have spent up­grad­ing the Euro­route in the last 10 months.

Scot­land TranServ’s prin­ci­pal road de­sign engineer, Alan Mur­ray, said: “While this is a sig­nif­i­cant in­vest­ment to im­prove the A75 over the last few months, there will be no rest for the Scot­land TranServ team as we work with com­mu­ni­ties to iden­tify ar­eas of the car­riage­way re­quir­ing treat­ment and we de­velop resur­fac­ing schemes able to de­liver tan­gi­ble, long-term ben­e­fits to one of south west Scot­land’s long­est and most strate­gic trunk roads.

“The de­liv­ery of this pro­gramme is tes­ta­ment to our on­go­ing con­sul­ta­tion with the lo­cal authority, emer­gency ser­vices and key lo­cal stake­hold­ers in sched­ul­ing our works to have lim­ited im­pact on com­mu­ni­ties, and to plan any dis­rup­tion around im­por­tant days in their cal­en­dar wher­ever pos­si­ble.”
