Updated Traffic Management
Please be advised that daytime works on the A76 north of Carronbridge, including temporary traffic lights and a convoy, will only take place on Wednesday 6th March 2024. The overnight works will continue as advertised. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Amey, on behalf of Transport Scotland, are undertaking essential overnight resurfacing on the A76, north of Carronbridge, from Monday 4th March until Saturday 9th March 2024.

This scheme, which will benefit around 3,000 vehicles using this road, each day, by improving the condition of the carriageway and ensuring it continues to operate safely and efficiently; and reducing the need for more extensive maintenance in future.

The A76 will be closed between 7pm and 6am each night, with daytime convoy working also taking place on Tuesday 5th, Wednesday 6th and Thursday 7th March.

There will be a signed diversion route in operation during the overnight works.

Northbound traffic will take the A702 in Carronbridge and continue north to Abington services roundabouts where it will join the B7078 and continue to Millbank, turning left onto the A70 Ayr Road east to Cumnock to rejoin the A76 at Dettingen Roundabout.  

Southbound traffic will take the exit at Dettingen Roundabout onto the A70 through Cumnock to the B7078 and then proceed to Abington Services, before taking the A702 south to Carronbridge.

The expected time through the diversion route is 75 minutes. Please plan your journey accordingly, and allow additional time for your journey, if necessary.

Access for emergency service vehicles will be maintained throughout these works.

We thank road users for their patience and understanding while this essential work is taking place.  

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