Queen’s Baton Relay
Fri, 13 Jun 2014
The Queen’s Baton Relay arrives in South Ayrshire on Friday 20 June and in East Ayrshire on Saturday 21 June.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for local batonbears who have been given the honour of carrying the Queen’s Baton.
The relay will have an impact upon the travelling public and the Ayrshire Roads Alliance apologises for any delay you may experience.
On the whole delays will be slight and kept to an absolute minimum.

East Ayrshire – Saturday 21 June 2014
In East Ayrshire, as the convoy carrying the Queen’s Baton makes its way along the route, there will be rolling road blocks with side roads closed for short periods of time. Traffic Management will be installed by the Council’s approved contractor Contraflow and information marshals will be placed in each community to provide helpful information on the day.
Only one road closure will be in place – Clunch Road, Stewarton (B769) will be closed between 13:30 and 14:00.
There will be parking restrictions at events across East Ayrshire so take care where you park or better still use public transport where possible.
