DRIVERS in South Ayrshire are being advised of essential roadworks on the A77 next week.

The work will take place at the Bridgemill roundabout in Girvan on Monday, June 27.

Temporary traffic lights will be in place for the duration of the work, which is scheduled to take place between 10am and 3pm.

A spokesperson for trunk road maintenance company Amey said: "This scheme will benefit vehicles using this route each day, by improving the condition of the carriageway and reducing the need for more extensive maintenance in the future. 

"Access for emergency service vehicles will be maintained throughout these works.

"The work is scheduled to take place between 10am and 3pm on Monday, however there is a possibility that it could take slightly longer subject to weather conditions."
