Beam delivery for new A737 Dalry bypass

The contractor on the A737 Dalry Bypass project is expected to take delivery of five large beams to enable construction of the overbridge at Blair Road.

The deliveries which are planned to take place in the early hours of Monday and Tuesday morning (29th and 30st January) will arrive under police escort and any road users travelling during this time ( 0000-0400 hrs) may experience a slight delay in their journey as the beams are manoeuvered through the town.
On reaching Dalry, the abnormal loads will travel along the A737 New Street, turning right into Bridgend and onto Blair Road before reaching the construction site which will be the final destination. 

A Transport Scotland spokesperson said:

“The contractor, Farrans Roadbridge Joint Venture has been liaising with Police Scotland and the local authority to minimise any inconvenience that may be caused and has planned for the beams to arrive in the early hours of the morning when the town of Dalry will be quieter.

We would, however, ask any road users travelling at this time through Dalry or on the outlying roads to allow extra time for their journey.
Our primary concern is for the safety of the local community, road users and workers during these deliveries and therefore it necessary to stop any traffic from using this road while the abnormal load vehicles negotiate the route through Dalry town centre.
We would like to thank road users and the local community for their on-going support and patience during the construction work.”
