Weekend Maintenance


Amey, on behalf of Transport Scotland as part of the Network Management Contract for the South-West Trunk Road Unit, are undertaking essential maintenance on the A78 between the junction of Portencross Road / B7048 Crosshill Brae and the B782 Drummilling Road from Friday 12th November until Monday 15th November 2021. 

This scheme, with a value of £200,000, will benefit around 7,775 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 work will be carried out using a full weekend closure of the A78 between Portencross Road and Drummiling Road with a diversion route in operation. Traffic management will be in place continuously from 8pm on Friday 12th November until 6am on Monday 15th November 2021 

Traffic travelling on the A78 Northbound will leave the A78 at Chapel Hill Roundabout and will then take the third exit to Dalry Road B780, Traffic will then continue on B780 through Dalry until the B784 Junction. Here, traffic will turn left onto B784, turn left again onto A760 Largs Road and re-join the A78 at Haylie Brae.  

Diverted traffic travelling along the A78 Southbound will take this route in reverse. 

Access to both Fairlie and Seamill / West Kilbride on the A78 will be maintained up to the works area with through traffic between Portencross Rd to Crosshill Brae available following the first evening. 

Our operatives will follow strict physical distancing and hygiene protocols throughout the programme, in line with the Scottish Government’s COVID-19 guidance.  

Please note, all schemes are weather dependent and may be cancelled or rescheduled if weather conditions are not favourable.
