A75 Kelton Farm to Bridge of Dee Resurfacing – Scotland Transerv

A75 Kelton Farm to Bridge of Dee Resurfacing

As part of Transport Scotland’s strategic trunk road management programme, Scotland TranServ will resurface the A75 between Kelton Farm and Bridge of Dee, west of Castle Douglas.

In order to complete these essential improvements as quickly and safely as possible, it will be necessary to implement a daytime convoy from the 13th until the 18th of April.

David Montgomery, Scotland TranServ’s Assistant Engineer said:

“We’ve planned this £125k project in consultation with the local authority, emergency services and key stakeholders. Resurfacing this 330m stretch of the trunk road involves a significant programme of work and therefore to reduce disruption we will carry this out under a daytime convoy.”

The convoy traffic management system will operate as follows:

  • 7am to 7pm each day between Saturday 13th and Thursday 18th of April

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

“This is a busy stretch of our trunk road network, connecting the Irish ferry ports at Cairnryan with Scotland’s central belt and the north of England. It’s important to us to keep disruption to a minimum, and therefore we have considered a number of temporary traffic management proposals in the programming of these works. We believe that on this occasion a convoy system will reduce the impact on the travelling public.”

Drivers are advised to allow some additional time for their journey. Live trunk road updates are available on trafficscotland.org or by following @trafficscotland on Twitter.
