A726 Queensway Resurfacing
As part of Transport Scotland’s strategic trunk road maintenance programme, Scotland TranServ will resurface nearly a kilometre of the A726 between the Righead and Murray Roundabouts in East Kilbride.
Works will take place over four nights (8pm to 6am) from Monday 21st to Thursday 24th of May. The £172k eastbound project is a follow up to last year’s Queensway westbound resurfacing. Preparatory works will be required to be undertaken in advance of these works during overnight lane closures.
Alan Murray, Scotland TranServ’s Principal Design Engineer said:
“We’ve worked closely with local authorities and key stakeholders to carefully plan these works to reduce the impact on commuters and shoppers in and around East Kilbride. Planning around other major utility projects in the area we have scheduled closures for overnight only.
“Traffic management will only be installed at night once traffic levels are sufficiently low and lifted first thing before the morning rush hour begins. The Queensway is a busy local artery and we want to keep the town flowing while maximising the efficiency of the works.”
Signed local diversions will be in place throughout the works, with special arrangements made for emergency service vehicles.
The works have been scheduled for a time of low impact, however we would ask those drivers travelling overnight to plan their journeys with this in mind, and to add some additional journey time.
