Engaging with local communities is at the heart of all of Transport Scotland’s major construction projects and will continue to be vital as work progresses on constructing the A77 Maybole Bypass.
The Contractor has a dedicated Community Liaison Officer (CLO) who is committed to keeping the local community informed as the project progresses.
Please contact the CLO for any enquiries relating to the construction of this project:

All traffic management for the project is planned in a manner that minimises the impact on the local community and minimises delays, disruptions and diversions to existing traffic. To help make sure this is achieved, traffic management proposals are planned and co-ordinated through a regular traffic management meeting. These meetings are chaired by the Contractor and attended by Transport Scotland and representatives of Operating Company Amey, Ayrshire Roads Alliance on behalf of the South Ayrshire Council and Police Scotland.
Safety of road users and the workforce through the construction area is a key priority and the traffic management measures are carefully planned to reflect this, while keeping disruption to a minimum.
The majority of the construction work will take place off-line, with temporary disruption to the trunk road traffic anticipated to be predominantly when connections of the bypass to the existing A77 trunk road are being built. However, as the project progresses, updates on major traffic management to allow construction of the project will be provided.

The dates given are as accurate as possible, but due to unforeseen circumstances such as weather, may be subject to change at short notice.
We will communicate the major traffic management using a variety of channels including letters, website, social media and on occasion radio broadcast.
We will make every effort to minimise disruption where possible, however road users should expect some disruption to the traffic flow and should allow additional time for journeys.
The normal working hours on-site are Monday to Saturday from 7am to 7pm. There may, on occasion, be a need for work to be carried out on Sundays with permission from South Ayrshire Council.
Environmental impact was assessed in detail and proposed mitigation measures are contained within the Environmental Statement as published.
