Week-long roadworks to improve part of the A75

A £500,000 scheme to carry out essential maintenance on part of the A75 will last a week.

Tuesday, 2nd February 2021, 11:55 am
Work on the A75 will begin on Friday

The work between Ramhill and Allanton Roundabout will take place from February 5-February 12, under a full weekend road closure, followed by overnight road closures for the rest of the week.

This £506,000 scheme will normally benefit around 6,000 vehicles every day by improving the condition of the carriageway and reducing the need for more extensive maintenance in future.

This work requires a full weekend closure from 8pm on February 5 until 6am on February 8. From February 8- February 12 there will be overnight closures from 8pm to 6am, each night. There will be a signed diversion in place during each closure.

Westbound traffic will exit the A75 to the B794 and continue through Haugh of Urr before joining the A711 Craignair Road. Traffic will then follow the A745 and continue to the roundabout at Oakwell Road. Vehicles will then travel on the A713 Queen Street to the B736 to Hightae Roundabout to re-join the A75.

Eastbound traffic will leave the A75 at Hightae Roundabout onto the B736 turning right onto St Andrews St then left onto King Street. Traffic will take the second exit at the roundabout onto the A745 to Dalbeattie where it becomes the A711. The diversion continues on the A711 until Cargenbridge where traffic will turn left until reaching Garroch Roundabout to re-join the A75.
