Bridge awaits repairs

MANY drivers using the A714 Newton Stewart to Wigtown road on are fed up with having to stop at the temporary traffic lights near Glenturk Farm.

The lights were put up around a month ago after an accident on that stretch of road. But weeks later there is still no sign of any move by Dumfries and Galloway Council to repair the damage to the section of dyke.

A council spokesperson said: “The problem is the bridge is also damaged. The traffic lights are there for safety reasons and the council is arranging for the bridge to be repaired.”
