Delivering a shared Council roads and transportation service across East and South Ayrshire
A71 maintenance works Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 June

The Ayrshire Roads Alliance will be carrying out routine maintenance works, including grass cutting and litter picking, to sections of the A71 from Bellfield Interchange to Moorfield roundabout and from Moorfield to Corsehill roundabout.

The works will be carried out on Saturday 13 June and Sunday 14 June between 05:00 hrs and approximately 20:00 hrs.

Due to the nature and location of the works it will be necessary to implement full carriageway closures. On Saturday 13 June, carriageway closures in both directions will be in place between the Moorfield Roundabout and the North Ayrshire Council boundary/ Corsehill Roundabout. No traffic will be permitted.

On Sunday 14 June, carriageway closures in both directions will be in place between the Bellfield Interchange and Moorfield Roundabout. Carriageway closures will also be in place on the off /on ramps to B7038 Campbell Street, Kilmarnock. No traffic will be permitted.

The full carriageway closures and works will be signed throughout and for the duration of the works. A roads diversion will be in place each way.

The Ayrshire Roads Alliance, on behalf of East Ayrshire Council, apologise in advance for the inconvenience these works will inevitably cause to the travelling public in and around this area of Kilmarnock. However, these essential maintenance works are required to improve and enhance the A71 road corridor.
