The final part to complete works on Phase 1 of the New Cumnock Flood Scheme is to re-profile the section of the B741 to Knockshinnock road. This ensures the diverted waters from the Connel burn follow the intended route away from properties and safely to return to the watercourse downstream.
These works which require complete replacement of sections of the road and new vertical alignment of the length, (and associated bridge works) are scheduled to commence on the 18th of February and last for 6 weeks , (subject to weather) this will require the closure of this section of road and a diversion to be put in place via the Boig Road towards Cumnock and back to New Cumnock.
Vehicular access for residents/owners/occupiers within the closure will be permitted to and from their properties but not through the actual works site.
Access for the emergency services and pedestrians will be maintained throughout the closure period.
Alternative Route: via B741, A76, A70, B7046, U743 Newfield and C 36 Boig Rd and vice versa.
