A70 Glenbuck Update December 2018

Mon, 10 Dec 2018

East Ayrshire Council has awarded RJ McLeod (Contractors) Ltd. a contract to carry out a major road realignment on the A70 at Glenbuck near the East Ayrshire/South Lanarkshire boundary. The Works involve some 800m of road realignment and replacement of the bridge carrying the road over the River Ayr.

Works commenced on 30 July 2018 and are expected to be completed in May 2019.

Traffic management will be in place during the works and delays are possible. A recent road closure at Glenbuck has allowed the River Ayr culvert to be replaced and a further road closure will also be required to facilitate final carriageway surfacing work towards the end of the contract. Further information will be provided in advance of this closure which will have a signed diversion route.

The Ayrshire Roads Alliance thank you for your consideration and patience whilst these road improvement works are undertaken.
