A77 Symington and Bogend Toll Improvements move closer

A multi-million pound project to provide grade separated junctions at Symington and Bogend Toll on the A77 has taken a significant step forward with the publication of made orders today.

The scheme, which is located between Spittalhill Interchange and Dutch House roundabout, bring safety benefits to road users on the A77. The scheme will also deliver improved accessibility to and from this busy trunk road that connects central Scotland to Ayrshire and Dumfries and Galloway while providing vital access to the ports of Cairnryan and Stranraer.

Transport Minister Stewart Stevenson said:

“Earlier this year the Scottish Government set out the actions being taken across the public sector to position Scotland’s economy for recovery and boost the long term performance of our economy.

“Our strategy includes delivering transport infrastructure improvements to encourage sustainable economic growth. Together with other projects such as the £9 million Burnside scheme, this investment will contribute to safety improvements and reduce journey times on this lifeline route.”

The A77 carries approximately 34,000 vehicles a day through this stretch and is not only a key link for Ayrshire communities but provides connections to and from Glasgow and further west via the M77.

This scheme will improve safety along the route with the closure of central reserve gaps along a 4.5 mile (7.3km) section of the route. Grade separated junctions at Symington and Bogend Toll will provide for safer manoeuvres at these junctions.

Interested parties can view the orders during business hours from 2 July 2010 to 13 August 2010 on (Monday to Friday, excluding public holidays) at Transport Scotland, Buchanan House, 58 Port Dundas Road, Glasgow, G4 0HF; South Ayrshire Council, County Buildings, Wellington Square, Ayr, KA7 IDR; Symington Library, Brewlands Road, Symington KAI 5QZ
