Kilmarnock Bypass to undergo improvements


A section of the A77 Kilmarnock Bypass linking Glasgow to Ayrshire is to undergo improvements worth £100,000.

The southbound road, which links the city to areas such as Cumnock, Cairnryan and Stranraer, is to be worked upon during the coming weekend in order to make the road’s surface smoother and quieter to travel on.

These improvements are being undertaken due to the ageing condition of the current surface of the road, which is used by 11,000 vehicles each day, reports the Cumnock Chronicle.

Mike Robin, network area manager for the project’s developer Amey in south west Scotland, said: “Resurfacing work is now required to protect the lower layers of the carriageway.”

He also stated that the company will be working with local authorities to ensure that drivers are inconvenienced as little as possible during the road works.

Last month, the Glasgow Sunday Mail reported that Transport Scotland have stated traffic restrictions on the city’s Kingston Bridge are likely to be in place indefinitely, despite recent attempts to overhaul its structure.
