Essential maintenance work planned for A71

The Ayrshire Roads Alliance, on behalf of East Ayrshire Council, will carry out essential maintenance works, including grass cutting and litter picking, to a section of the A71 from Bellfield Interchange to Moorfield roundabout and from Moorfield roundabout to Corsehill roundabout at the North Ayrshire Council boundary.


The works will be carried out on Saturday 11 August 2018 and Sunday 12 August 2018 between 06:00 and approximately 20:00.

Due to the nature and location of the works, it will be necessary to implement full carriageway closures on Saturday 11 August 2018. The carriageway closures in both directions will be in place between the Moorfield Roundabout and the North Ayrshire Council boundary at Corsehill Roundabout.

The full carriageway closures and works will be signed throughout and for the duration of the works, and a roads diversion via B7081 and B7064 will be in place.

On Sunday 12 August 2108, carriageway lane closures in both directions will be in place between the Bellfield Interchange and Moorfield Roundabout. In addition, full carriageway closures will be in place to the off / on ramps to B7038 Campbell Street, Kilmarnock.

The Alliance thanks you for your consideration and patience while this essential work is undertaken.
