Enhanced Maintenance Programme Moves Towards Greenock
Scotland TranServ’s Enhanced Maintenance Programme is progressing into Inverclyde, with the A8 and A78 in line for the concentrated, programme of trunk road maintenance.
This concentrated effort is part of a programme of works, with Scotland TranServ’s teams carrying out essential maintenance to the trunk road network, junction by junction, night after night.
Additional sign and gully cleaning, road sweeping, the removal of litter and debris, cutting of grass, clearing of vegetation and the relining of road markings and replacement of cat eyes will all take place overnight minimising disruption to road users.
Andrew Adam, Scotland TranServ’s Operations Manager said:
“We would like to thank drivers for their patience while this essential programme is carried out. Already, some of the country’s busiest roads including our sections of the M8, A737 and M77 have benefitted. The programme will continue in the weeks ahead, as we sweep along the A8 and down the A78, take in the M74, the East Kilbride Expressway, and the A75 and A76 in Dumfries and Galloway.”
This week, the programme of work includes:
- Monday 28th Oct – A8/A78 from Newark to Bullring, and Flatterton Rd to Bankfoot Rbt
- Tuesday 29th Oct – Continued as above
- Wednesday 30th Oct – A78 Bullring Rbt to Wemyss single carriageway sections
- Thursday 31st Oct – Continued as above
- Friday 1st Nov – Continued as above
Lane closures and diversions are essential to help protect the safety of our workers and motorists using our trunk roads. Where possible, Scotland TranServ is scheduling works to have minimal impact on our customers and businesses across the region.
