Enhanced Maintenance Programme Winter Update – Scotland Transerv

Enhanced Maintenance Programme Winter Update

Scotland TranServ’s Enhanced Maintenance Programme has this week completed a sweep of our sections of the M74 between Junction’s 10 and 12.

The programme has involved the cleaning and repair of signs, jetting of gullies, the tidying of verges, cutting of grass and clearing of vegetation. Where possible our works have been carried out overnight to avoid disruption to commuters and businesses using our essential routes.

The maintenance programme has been carried out on the M8 and M77 through Central Glasgow, the M74 in Lanarkshire, the A8 and A78 through Inverclyde and is currently on A75 & A77 through Dumfries & Galloway which will be followed by A82 in West Dunbartonshire and Erskine Bridge.

Paul Lynch, Scotland TranServ’s Network Manager said:

“Across the network, our teams are transforming the look of the Trunk Roads and Motorways which our customers use every day. This concentrated effort to deliver the improvement programme across multiple routes throughout South West Scotland. Our Operations teams is carrying out essential maintenance to the trunk road network, junction by junction, night after night.

“Where possible, Scotland TranServ is scheduling works to have minimal impact on our customers across the region. Lane closures and diversions are essential to help protect the safety of our workers and motorists using our trunk roads. We would like to thank drivers for their patience while these essential improvements are delivered.”

Over the next few weeks, Scotland TranServ will concentrate efforts on the A75 and A77 through Dumfries & Galloway and South Ayrshire, enhancing those areas of highest priority, during daytime working hours.
