Design work set to get underway for A737 at Beith

Three road schemes in North Ayrshire are to be brought together to improve a section of the A737.

Subject to a mandatory standstill period, Amey has been awarded the contract worth around £500,000 to design improvements for the A737 trunk road near the North Ayrshire town of Beith.

Transport Minister Keith Brown said:

“The Scottish Government is working hard across the country to improve the trunk road network.

“Already in North Ayrshire, we are progressing the work for the A737 The Den scheme and we will shortly be publishing the draft Orders for the Dalry Bypass.

“This design work which will start next month will enable a preferred option to be identified by next summer.

“When the road improvements are completed they will help improve the road system around the town of Beith bringing improved traffic flow and road safety benefits benefitting road users and the local community alike.”

The A737 Improvements at Beith design work will start next month which will allow a preferred option to be identified by summer 2014.

The work will bring together the following three road schemes which were previously being progressed by North Ayrshire Council:

  • Beith Bypass Carriageway Renewal
  • Barrmill Road Roundabout
  • Head Street / Wardrop Street Roundabout
