A77 landslide repairs start date set

Piling work is set to start in November on the A77 at Cairnryan – almost three years after the section was affected by ground movement.

Both sides of the route at Marchburn were damaged by landslides in 2014 and the road has been subject to traffic controls since temporary repairs were undertaken in 2015.

Scotland Transerv has said that that the road will be closed to traffic from 3 November to allow piling work for the permanent repairs to start. The road will reopen under traffic control on 6 November and this will remain in place until the work is completed in early 2018.

Transerv described the project as “large and complex”.
