A737 Dalry Bypass

Project Benefits

Completion of the Dalry Bypass will encourage improved economic and employment opportunities through better journey time reliability for motorists and businesses along the length of the A737. In addition, the Dalry Bypass will help separate local from strategic traffic and lead to improved safety for both rural road users and communities.

Status

In procurement.

Impact on travellers

Traffic management

As most of the construction work will take place off-line, it is anticipated that traffic management will be predominantly limited to periods when the connections of the bypass to the existing A737 trunk road are being built.

Environmental impact

An environmental impact assessment was undertaken and the Environmental ststement was published along with the draft Statutory Order material.

Preferred route option public exhibition

Transport Scotland held a public exhibition on Friday 22 June 2012 at Dalry Public Library, 14 The Cross, Dalry Ayrshire, KA24 5AW to present the preferred route alignment and receive comments on the proposals.
