A75 Hardrigg Lodge Resurfacing
As part of Transport Scotland’s strategic trunk road maintenance programme, Scotland TranServ will resurface 915 metres of the A75 at Hardrigg Lodge near Annan.
In order to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible it will be necessary to close the carriageway weekday overnights and at weekends, keeping disruption to a minimum.
Alan Murray, Scotland TranServ’s Principal Road Design Engineer said:
“We’ve been working with local authorities and key stakeholders to schedule this programme of work to be delivered with as little disruption on the local community and businesses as possible. We’ve programmed the works to be carried out ahead of the busy holiday season with an increase in tourist traffic heading to and from the busy ferry port.
“The length and depth of resurfacing required make it necessary to work weekday overnights and over the two weekends. A local diversion will be clearly signposted throughout.”
Traffic management will be in place during the following times:
- 7pm on Friday 18th to 6am on Monday 21st May
- 7pm to 6am each weekday overnight from Monday 21st to Thursday 24th May
- 7pm Friday 25th to 6am Monday 28th May
Please note that Stapleton Road Junction will be closed for the duration of these works. Special arrangements will be made for emergency service vehicles, however no additional arrangements have been made for windfarm traffic.
The works have been scheduled for a time of low impact, however we would ask those drivers using the A75 over these weekends to plan their journeys with this in mind, and to add some additional journey time.
