DOONFOOT Road will undergo £75,000 worth of road resurfacing this year.

The Ayrshire Roads Alliance recently informed the Alloway and Doonfoot community council that capital works, expected to cost £75,000, have been approved.

This was discussed at a recent public meeting. 

Work will be carried out from from Gearholm Road to number 44 Doonfoot Road adding to some surface patching which has already been carried out.

It is believed this is only to be a temporary fix as well as cover up the rugged landscape and various potholes which several drivers have raised concern about.

Provided the work is completed, it is hoped that it will improve the maintenance of the road particularly during the winter months, design, infrastructure, road safety and mobility.

Local police have also confirmed that they are monitoring the problem and will continue to do so. 

The Alliance, which is looking into the development, is governed by a joint committee of elected members from the South and East Ayrshire councils. 

It delivers roads services including roads maintenance, winter maintenance, design and infrastructure, traffic and transportation and road safety.

Double yellow lines are to be applied to the road corners at Cunning Park Drive, which joins onto Doonfoot Road, in a bid to improve safety and sight lines at the road junction.

It has been confirmed that this will not reduce the parking of local garage vehicles outside Honda.

Former councillor Bill Grant, previously confirmed that any parking restriction would require a road traffic regulation order. 

A resident of Cunning Park recently advised the Alloway and Doonfoot Community Council that the South Ayrshire Council street had not been cleaned properly for a considerable time.

It was claimed that the reason was because the road sweeper was restricted by parked cars and other vehicles.

The council are able to issue a special order for these situations to allow work to go ahead.
