Roads bosses aim to carry out work to improve 80 carriageways and foot paths in South Ayrshire during the upcoming financial year. 

It comes as council leader Peter Henderson, SNP, admits roads are in a “terrible” state  but said workers are doing their best. 

The council is to splash out about £5.47million on repairing routes in the area.

Councillor Henderson said: “Everyone agrees the roads are terrible. It is frustrating for people but we are doing our best.”

Roadworks are in the pipeline across South Ayrshire including in the Ayr, Prestwick, Troon, Tarbolton, Maybole and Girvan areas among others. See below for full list of roadworks taking place in your area. 

In addition to the investment in roads, the council is spending additional cash on maintaining bridges, traffic signals, electric vehicle charging infrastructure among others costs.  

LED replacement lights will cost £914,000 this year and £260,000 will be spent on 20mph zones in villages. 

Councillor Henderson praised the Ayrshire Roads Alliance for catching up on work put on hold due to lockdown restrictions last financial year. 

He said: “The Ayrshire Roads Alliance have caught up on 80 per cent of the roads from last year. They are working well.”

Councillors sitting on the Leadership Panel signed off the road improvement plan recently. 

A paper presented to politicians said: “The transport infrastructure is one of the most valuable council assets and it is vital to the economic well-being and development of South Ayrshire. The infrastructure contributes significantly to the local economy and regeneration.

“The road asset carriageway alone is valued at £1.9billion.”
