A77 Stumpy Corner Update – Scotland Transerv

A77 Stumpy Corner Update

Scotland TranServ, on behalf of Transport Scotland, will install specialist pavement surfacing at Stumpy Corner in Girvan, on the pedestrian walkways adjacent to the A77 trunk road.

The surfacing will be installed following strict physical distancing protocols in line with the Scottish Government’s COVID-19 guidance. In association with Transport Scotland, we have identified this project as an essential scheme, vital to maintaining the integrity and safety of the network.

Vincent Tait, Scotland TranServ’s Road Safety Manager said:

“This is an essential part of our network, and following consultation with the local community, we will be replacing the current surface with a more specialist paving, more in keeping with the aesthetic of the area.

“Many new working practices have been implemented across our own workforce and those of our contractors and suppliers as we work towards the future delivery of our programmes. Thorough risk assessments have been carried out as we take a lead in the delivery of trunk road maintenance.

“Scotland TranServ and Transport Scotland would like to take this opportunity to thank drivers for making only essential journeys over the last few months, and for playing their part in protecting the country’s key workers.”

In order to complete these works as quickly and safely as possible, it will be necessary to implement temporary pedestrian facilities. These will be in place during the following times:

  • Monday 13th July to Friday 14th August 2020

Works will be carried out during the daytime, with the alternative arrangements required to be in place around the clock. Access to shops will be maintained throughout opening times. Temporary traffic lights will be installed during the work programme. We aim to maintain as much on street parking as possible, with local car parks unaffected.
