A77 Maybole Bypass

The project aims to remove conflict between local and strategic traffic, relieve congestion in the town, and improve safety and journey time reliability on the A77 trunk road. 

The scheme is progressing through its preparatory design stages.

Impact on travellers

As most of the construction work will take place off-line, it is anticipated that temporary disruption to trunk road traffic will be predominantly limited to periods when connections of the bypass to the existing A77 trunk road are being built.

Traffic management

As most of the construction work will take place off-line, it is anticipated that traffic management on the trunk road will be predominantly limited to periods when the connections of the bypass to the existing A77 trunk road are being built.
