The Ayrshire Roads Alliance has noted that there has been some movement in the road and embankment on the A71 westbound carriageway between Darvel and Newmilns.
In order to ensure the safety of the travelling public, a temporary traffic management system has been installed which will also allow for a full assessment of this part of the road to be undertaken. This will include a geotechnical ground investigation.
All west and east bound traffic will be subject to delay whilst passing through the works, but to mitigate and reduce any delays, the traffic signals will be controlled and monitored at peak times.
The Ayrshire Roads Alliance, on behalf of East Ayrshire Council, apologises in advance for the inconvenience these works will inevitably cause to the travelling public in and around this area. However, these traffic management arrangements are essential and these will remain in place until a solution can be implemented.
