The A77 is set for more roadworks later this month, leading to road closures at certain times.

Roadside hazard protection work on the major trunk road will take place at Smithston Rail Bridge from Monday, September 20 until Saturday, October 17, 2021.

To allow for the work to be completed, the road will be closed in the southbound direction between Monday, September 20 and Sunday, October 3.

Then from October 3-17, a night-time total closure will be required between the hours of 8pm and 6am.

Southbound traffic will be diverted to exit via Doonholm Road and will proceed on the A719, rejoining the A77 at Turnberry.

Northbound traffic will follow the same diversion route but in reverse.
