From Tuesday 7 April, the Ayrshire Roads Alliance will be carrying out essential road resurfacing works on the A70 at Lugar from Braehead Farm road end to the C22 junction to Cronberry, as part of its ongoing programme to improve the condition of the road network
This £150,000 project, which is weather dependent, will involve, deep patching, regulating the existing road surface, laying a new surface course and renewing the associated road markings.
In addition to the above resurfacing works there will be deep patching works within the village, from the C23 Peesweep Brae to Bellow Mill.
To ensure the safety of the roads operatives and the travelling public the following traffic management system will be in operation during the works:
The carriageway resurfacing preparatory works will be carried out during week days and a convoy system and/or two way temporary traffic signals will be in operation during this period, the A70 will remain open, although delays are possible.
To complete the final surface course and the patching works within the village the A70 will be closed, when signed accordingly, from the C23 Peesweep Brae to the C22 junction into Cronberry from 08.00hrs on Saturday 11 April until 24.00hrs on Sunday 12 April or until the works are complete whichever is earliest.
Local access will only be permitted to properties or land within the closed section when it is safe to allow, delays are possible.
A diversion route will be signed via the A70 to the B743 to Mauchline, A76 to Cumnock, at Dettingen Roundabout before re-joining the A70 through Cumnock towards Lugar and vice versa.
Works will continue week beginning Monday 13 April under convoy traffic management until all works are complete.
Please allow sufficient time when planning your journey as some delays will be inevitable. Advisory signs will be erected in advance of the works to alert the travelling public.
The Ayrshire Roads Alliance apologises for any inconvenience caused during these essential road works.
