A70 Coalhall resurfacing works – weekend closures

The A70 Cumnock to Ayr Road will be closed over three weekends to allow for the resurfacing of the stretch from Coalhall Rail Bridge to the substation near West Tarelgin Farm.

The works will take place on:

Saturday 29 June and Sunday 30 June
Saturday 6 July and Sunday 7 July
Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 July

To carry out these works safely and efficiently and to protect the roads operatives and the travelling public we will require to close this section of the A70 from 07:00 on each Saturday until 18:00 on the Sunday.

A signed diversion route will be in place via B730 Drongan, B7046 Sinclairston, U728 Glenconner, before re-joining the A70 at Mote Toll (West of Ochiltree) and vice versa. Vehicular access onto the A70 during the road closure periods will not be possible via the B730 Stair Road.

It is anticipated that the resurfacing work will be completed within the timescales stipulated; however, the work is weather dependent.
