As part of Transport Scotland’s strategic trunk road maintenance programme, Scotland TranServ will undertake the reinstatement of a minor landslip at Carlock Hill on the A77.

This first phase of a three phase programme of works will begin on Monday 12th February and run until Friday 23rd February. In order to protect the health and safety of trunk road traffic and provide a safe working area for our operatives, it will be necessary to implement a single lane closure under temporary traffic lights for the duration of the project.

Charles Macklin, Scotland TranServ’s Principal Engineer said:

“In order to keep disruption to a minimum, while ensuring the health and safety of our workers and the travelling public, it will be necessary to carry out these works under a single lane closure. We expect this to incur a delay of only a few minutes to those using the trunk road.

“The project is part of an on-going programme of investigations and repairs to maintain the embankments over and supporting the trunk road in this area and help prevent future closures due to landslips.  This phase will replace the failing upslope with rock fill to ensure the stability of the ground in the immediate area.”

The northbound lane, 4 miles south of Ballantrae will be closed, with the A77 operating under short-term, temporary traffic lights during this project. Motorists and ferry passengers in particular are advised to allow some additional time for their journey.
