A78 Greenock to Prestwick trunk road resurfacing works

Road users are set to benefit from a £300k investment in the Trunk Road infrastructure which will be carried out on the northbound A78 Greenock to Prestwick Trunk Road between Sharphill Roundabout and Chapelhill Roundabout.

Scotland TranServ, on behalf of Transport Scotland will carry out the resurfacing works to the route, known as the Three Towns Bypass. To protect the safety of motorists and roadworkers a total road closure will be implemented at 9.00pm on Friday 4 to 5.00am on Monday 7 April. Motorists travelling southbound will remain unaffected by these works.

Advanced warning signs will be positioned on the approach to the works to inform road users that the works are taking place.


On A78 at Sharphill Roundabout leave by taking 1st exit onto B714. Continue on B714 to Dalry Road, Saltcoats and at traffic lights at A738 take right onto A738. Follow A738 on High Road, Parkhouse Road and Eglinton Road to Montfode Roundabout. Take 1st exit to rejoin A78 northbound.

Russell Rennie, contract director, Scotland TranServ comments:

“This essential maintenance scheme will benefit road users of the A78 by improving the road surface and extending its lifespan.

“We are doing everything we can to minimise disruption when the maintenance is underway, however we would advise motorists to plan ahead and leave plenty of time for their journeys.
