Major road works planned for Moorfield roundabout

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 the A71 Moorfield Roundabout in Kilmarnock.

The works, which will start on Monday 25 July, will take place over a four week period and will be carried out on the A71, the roundabout surface and the B7046 road.

This project, which is weather dependent, will involve lane reconstruction, realignment of the approach islands, replacement of the road surfaces, re-setting ironwork and renewing the associated road markings and road studs.

To ensure the safety of roads operatives and the travelling public the resurfacing will be carried out in phases therefore the diversions and Traffic Management will change during the construction period.

From Monday 1st August the contract phase moves to the next stage with a new traffic management system from Sunday 31st July

Half the roundabout will be closed and a contraflow system will be in force.

There will be no access to and from B7081 Irvine Road to the A71 Carriageway at Moorfield Roundabout where a road closure with appropriate diversion signage shall be in place.

The footpath within the work site will also be closed to pedestrian for the duration of works.

Access to the A759 from Dundonald Road in Kilmarnock will remain open throughout the works.
