A full weekend closure on the A75 near Kirkcudbright followed by midweek overnight closures will start on Friday, June 23.

Scotland TranServ, working on behalf of Transport Scotland, will carry out road resurfacing works between the A75/A711 Kirkcudbright junction and Barncrosh from Friday 23rd to Wednesday 28th June.

The £340k project will repair potholes and structural cracking on a 700m section of the A75. All traffic will be diverted along the A711 and A762.

The A75 road closures include: 7pm Friday 23rd June to 6am Monday 26th June, continuous 24 hours; Further two overnight closures will be implemented on Monday 26th June and Tuesday 27th June between 7pm to 6am respectively.

A three-way traffic signal system will be implemented at the junction with Tongland bridge (A711/A762) in order to control large vehicle turning movements.

Rajan Singh, Scotland TranServ’s Project Manager for the scheme said: “We realise that this is an important economic artery for South West Scotland, and that is why we’re making every effort to reduce disruption.”
