Amey, on behalf of Transport Scotland, are undertaking essential tree felling on the A701 at St Ann’s on Saturday 9th March between the hours of 8am and 5pm. This tree felling is required due to the presence of Ash Dieback disease.

The work will be carried out using a full closure and a signed diversion will be in operation. We thank road users for their patience and co-operation while this essential work takes place.

The signed diversion will operate as follows: Southbound traffic will leave the A701 at the B7076 junction south of Beattock and travel south to Lockerbie, taking the B7076/A709 slip to join the A709. Traffic will head west on A709 to Dumfries and join the A75 at the A75/A709 Lockerbie Road Roundabout and be directed east to re-join the A701.

Northbound as above in reverse

Access for emergency service vehicles and residential access 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.
