Upcoming closure on A737 through The Den

A section of the A737 from Manrahead roundabout to the Highfield roundabout will temporarily close to all road users from Monday July 22, 2019 for approximately 4 weeks.

The closure will allow essential work to be carried out safely to construct the road tie-ins which will, on completion of the project, connect the existing A737 to the new road.

Local access only will be provided and a signed diversion route will be in place.

Transport Scotland and its Contractor, Interserve Construction Limited, would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.

A Transport Scotland spokesperson said:

“We anticipate that this could cause a minor delay to people’s journeys and would advise that you allow more time for your journey and plan ahead.

"We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank the public for their patience and continued co-operation."

On completion the A737 The Den Realignment will remove the current substandard bends on the existing A737, introduce safety benefits and improve traffic flow.

The completion of the project is expected in Spring 2020.
