A75 Newton Stewart to Knockbrex Resurfacing – Scotland Transerv

A75 Newton Stewart to Knockbrex Resurfacing

As part of Transport Scotland’s strategic trunk road management programme, Scotland TranServ will resurface 1.2km of carriageway on the A75 between Newton Stewart and Knockbrex Farm.

In order to complete this £363k project as quickly and safely as possible, it will be necessary to implement a convoy traffic management system on the trunk road.

Dayle Gillespie, Scotland TranServ’s Project Design Lead on the programme said:

“The health and safety of our workers and the travelling public is of the utmost importance to Scotland TranServ, and that is why it will be necessary to install this convoy system while this important resurfacing programme is being carried out. Scotland TranServ has been working in consultation with the local authority, emergency services and key stakeholders in the planning and programming of this scheme.”

It will however, be necessary to close Barnkirk Junction throughout the duration of these works, with local diversions in place.

The convoy system will be in place during the following times:

  • 7am to 7pm each day from Monday 4th to Monday 11th March

Outwith working hours, temporary traffic lights may be left in operation to allow cooling of the road surface. Drivers are advised to allow some extra time for their journey. Motorists can check live trunk information on trafficscotland.org, or by following @trafficscotland on Twitter.
