Procurement for multimillion pound A77 and A75 schemes begins

Contractors are being offered the opportunity to bid for two major roads projects in south Scotland.

Procurement begins this month on both the A75 Dunragit bypass and the A77 Symington to Bogend Toll schemes. Tender notices for both schemes will be published this month in the first stage in the procurement process.

The A75 Dunragit bypass in Dumfries and Galloway will provide over 5km of new road aimed at improving overtaking for both east and westbound traffic.

In Ayrshire, upgrades to the busy A77 will target accident reduction and lead to a safer route for road users. Removing the gaps in the central reservation and introducing grade separated junctions at Symington and Bogend Toll will address safety concerns.

The tender process is expected to be completed by Spring 2013 and it is anticipated work can start on both sites soon after. Both schemes are expected to be completed in 2014.
