Week-long roadworks are set to take place on the A77 near Girvan.

A signed diversion will be in operation on the road, with the works taking place between Sunday, November 19 and Monday, November 27.

Amey are undertaking essential bridge deck resurfacing and expansion joint replacement on the A77 between 8pm and 6am each night.

Transport Scotland has said that this scheme will benefit around 8,500 vehicles using this route each day, by improving the condition of the carriageway and reducing the need for more extensive maintenance in the future. 

The works will take place at Bridgemill, 500m north of Girvan.
