Kilmarnock Mothercare site redevelopment
Kilmarnock Town Centre will start the new year with a new look, after a date of 6 January 2021 was set for the start of a project which will transform the bottom end of King Street, opening up space beside Kilmarnock Water to create an exciting new outdoor area for public use.
One of Scotland’s leading demolition specialists, Caskie Ltd, has been appointed to carry out the 20 week job, which will see the removal of the former Mothercare building on the corner of King Street and St Marnock Street.
The company will begin on site on 6 January, when the surrounding pavement will be closed to allow erection of scaffolding. The actual demolition will start on 11 Jan, with painstaking manual removal of the upper two floors, followed by mechanical demolition to the ground floor.
Health and Safety considerations will mean that Ayrshire Roads Authority (ARA) will oversee a programme of partial road closures, which will be managed to minimise traffic disruption as far as possible. These will be widely advertised in local media and social media and on the East Ayrshire Council and ARA websites.
