A77 landslip works to resume

The ongoing programme of repair and landslide mitigation on the A77 in Scotland will resume today.

The work to improve the resilience of the route is being carried out by Scotland Transerv on behalf of Transport Scotland and will see further repairs and drainage improvements to the hillside at Carlock Hill. 

Geotechnical surveys will also be carried out just north of Cairnryan to help plan the next stage of the programme.

The work follows the publication of the South West Landslide Action Plan by Transport Scotland. It sets out the long-term measures that will be taken in future to try to mitigate the effect of landslides in the area.

The A77 is expected to be closed between Cairnryan and Girvan for five nights to allow the works to completed.
