Resurfacing plans for A75
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.”
