A77 Whatriggs Road |Bridge Parapet Replacement

Whatriggs Road
21st of April 2024, 12:00am to 23rd of June 2024, 11:59pm

Amey, on behalf of Transport Scotland, are undertaking bridge parapet replacement on the A77 at Whatriggs Road Overbridge, two miles south of Kilmarnock, from Sunday 21st April until Sunday 23rd June 2024. This work has been extended due to technical issues during the hydro demolition of the parapet structure. 


This scheme will benefit vehicles using this route each day, by improving the condition and safety of the parapet structure and reducing the need for more extensive maintenance in the future.  


The works will take place at Whatriggs Road under a total closure of local authority road over the A77 until Sunday 23rd June 2024. The road closure is to facilitate the safe demolition of the concrete cope. A signed diversion will be in operation.  

Traffic will be diverted along the A76 westbound to Bellfield Interchange where it will take the third exit on the roundabout to Queens Drive and turn left on to the B7072 (Hurlford Road). Traffic will then turn left on to New Street and continue until Whatriggs Road and turn right at the roundabout on to Merrick Road. Traffic will then be able to turn left to join Whatriggs Road, where the diversion ends.  


Access for emergency service vehicles will be maintained throughout these works. Please note, all schemes are weather dependent and may be cancelled or rescheduled if weather conditions are not favourable.
