Castle Douglas roadworks on A75

Resurfacing roadworks are to begin on the A75 Castle Douglas Bypass on May 20.

Scotland TranServ, on behalf of Transport Scotland, will carry out over 1km of resurfacing works between Hillowton to Dunmuir Road and Blackpark Underpass to Carlingwark Lane beginning on Friday 20 May.

A total road closure will be in place east and westbound from 7pm on Friday 20 May to 6am on Monday 23 May. Overnight closures will then be in operation from Monday 23 until Saturday 28 May to allow for completion of the works.

Traffic will be diverted along A745/B736 via Castle Douglas.

Andy Fraser, Operating Company Representative, Scotland TranServ said: “This essential carriageway maintenance scheme will improve the resilience of this section of the A75, which is used by over 5000 road users each day.”
