UPDATE on Essential Gas Upgrade Works in Marchburn Avenue area of Prestwick

Alert message sent 23/01/2019 10:51:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch Scotland

The following information is being circulated on behalf of SGN

We wrote to you on 16 January 2019 regarding our £345,000 project to upgrade the gas network in the Marchbank Avenue area of Prestwick.

Following discussions with South Ayrshire Council, our project started on Monday 7 January and will last approximately 33 weeks. This essential work involves the replacement of old, metal gas mains with new plastic pipe to ensure a continued safe and reliable gas supply.  We’re carrying out the work over three phases to help minimise disruption.

We need to inform you that the traffic management required for the first phase of our work has been changed. Please see the highlighted change below.

Phase 1 – approximately 8 weeks
On Monday 7 January, we began work in Marchburn Avenue between Indale Avenue and Outdale Avenue. Four- way temporary traffic lights will be in place at Marchburn Avenues junction with Outdale Avenue. During this phase, we will also be working in Mossbank, Ferguson Avenue and Sanquhar Avenue. To ensure everyone’s safety, we now need to close Sanquhar Avenue from Thursday 24 January for two weeks, and Clune Drive from Saturday 26 January for two weeks. Local signed diversions will be in place for motorists.

Phase 2 – approximately 2 weeks
From Saturday 9 February, we will continue working in Marchburn Avenue at the junction of Adamton Road North.
Temporary three-way traffic lights will be in place at the junction for everyone’s safety.
During this phase we will still be working in Mossbank, Ferguson Avenue and Sanquhar Avenue.

Phase 3 – approximately 23 weeks
From Monday 4 February we will be working in Rowanbank Road leading back to the junction of Indale Avenue, St Quivox Road and East Road. These works will finish in East Road adjacent to Crosbie Terrace.
To ensure everyone’s safety, we will install three- way temporary traffic lights at this junction for approximately three weeks during this phase.

Sometimes we need to close a road, with the permission of the local authority, to keep the public and our engineers safe while the work is taking place. We’ll always provide notification if this is the case.

You can find more about our work in your area by searching on roadworks.org. We also use social media and traffic bulletins to keep residents and motorists informed.

Please feel free to share this information with anyone else who may be impacted by our work.

If you have any other enquiries about this project, please call project manager Dougie Eliot on 07879 431 965 during office hours (8am to 4.30pm) or on 0800 912 1700 outside these times.
