Delivering a shared Council roads and transportation service across East and South Ayrshire
Galston road closure from 18 September

Due to the demolition work being carried out on the former Co-Op building on Cross Street, Galston, we must temporarily close a short stretch of the road at the top of Cross Street from 18 September for approximately 12 weeks. The closure will not affect access to Church Lane and the public car park.

The stuctural concerns with the building are so serious that we must demolish the building as soon as possible.  We apologise for any inconvenience caused, however the safety of the public and contractors must come first. The work will feed into the current regeneration of Galston Town Centre and plans include the restoration of the Council Offices to provide improved services and accessibility.

Our Local Office has been temporarily relocated to Galston Library with cash payments able to be made at the PayPoint across the road. Our staff are happy to advise and support customers.  We will also be consulting the public on the exciting new plans for the area in the coming weeks. More information is available here  and will be updated as the project develops.

Roadworks planned for Glaisnock Street, Cumnock

The Ayrshire Roads Alliance, as part of its ongoing programme to improve the condition of the road network, will be carrying out major road resurfacing works on Glaisnock Street, Cumnock from the junction at Hall Terrace to the junction at Wylie Crescent.

The works, which are due to start on Monday 31 July and will continue for up to 10 working days, will involve removing sections of the existing road surface, laying a base course, resetting ironware, laying a new surface course and renewing the associated road markings.

To carry out these works safely and efficiently and to protect the roads operatives and the travelling public, this section of Glaisnock Street will be closed Monday to Friday from 8am until 6pm.

An alternative route will be signed via the B7083 to Skerrington roundabout onto the A76 Cumnock by-pass, A70 towards Cumnock onto Ayr Road, before re-joining Glaisnock Street and vice versa.

Emergency access will be maintained at all times.

The Ayrshire Roads Alliance on behalf of East Ayrshire Council apologises in advance for any inconvenience caused by the works.
