  • Overnight closure 8 November 2023

BEAR Scotland, Transport Scotland’s operating company, is set to carry out coring investigation works to assess the condition of A977 Gartarry Roundabout.

To allow these works to be carried out safely, it is necessary to close a section of the roundabout between the A907 westbound exit and entrance, from 19:30 until 06:00 on the night of Wednesday 8 November.

A clearly signed diversion route will be in place with traffic diverted northwest onto the A907 before taking the third exit at Marywood Roundabout and returning onto the A907 eastbound. This diversion will add approximately six minutes and 3.9 miles to affected journeys.

Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times.

Tommy Deans, BEAR Scotland’s South East Network Manager, said: “These coring investigation works will allow us to assess the condition of these slip roads on the A977 in advance of future resurfacing.

“If you need to use these routes at night over the next few weeks, our advice is to plan ahead and allow a few extra minutes for your journey if necessary.

“We’re grateful to road users and the local community for their understanding.”
