A701 Tathhill and Courancehill Resurfacing – Scotland Transerv

A701 Tathhill and Courancehill Resurfacing

Scotland TranServ, on behalf of Transport Scotland will resurface a total of 2 kilometres of carriageway at 2 locations on the A701 from Friday 20th to Friday 27th April. These locations are Tathhill and Courancehill.

Works to resurface 1.2 kilometres at Tathhill will be carried out under a weekend closure of the A701 from 20th to 23rd April.  Resurfacing of 800 metres of the trunk road at Courancehill will be carried out overnight from Monday 23rd to Friday 27th April.

Alan Murray, Scotland TranServ’s Principal Road Design Engineer said:

“To complete these projects with as little disruption as possible, it is necessary to implement a weekend closure and a series of subsequent overnight closures. Because of the depth of treatment at Tathhill it will be necessary to allow a longer period of time for the new surface to harden. This requires weekend working. We are able to reduce that time for the resurfacing of the A701 at Courancehill because the required treatment depth is not as great.”

Signed local diversions will be in place throughout the works, with special arrangements made for emergency services vehicles. No additional arrangements have been made for windfarm traffic.

Alan continued:

“We have worked closely with Police Scotland, the local authority and key stakeholders to carefully schedule this programme. It is our aim to engage with communities to reduce the impact of our works on commuters and freight traffic alike.”

The £426k project will operate during the following period:

  • 8pm Friday 20th to 6am Monday 23rd April – Full weekend closure of A701
  • Monday 23rd to Friday 27th April – Overnight road closures of A701 from 8pm each night to 6am the following morning
