As you know we’ve begun our project to upgrade our gas network in A760, between Lochwinnoch and Kilbirnie. This project involves us replacing our existing gas mains and services in the area with new plastic pipe.

We originally hoped to carry out our work under temporary traffic lights however, due to engineering difficulties, we’ll need to temporarily close the A760. The A760 will be closed both ways, between Lochwinnoch and Kilbirnie, from Friday 18 September for six weeks to allow our engineers to work safely.

A signed diversion route will be in place for southbound motorists travelling from Lochwinnoch via A760, A737, Beith bypass, A737, B777, Holmhead, Avils Place, Newton Street and Main Street.
The diversion route for northbound motorists travelling from Kilbirnie will be the same as the above in reverse.

Access for residents will be maintained at all times. Temporary traffic lights will also be in place within the road closure at the A760’s junction with Corsefield Road. These are needed to ensure the safety of our engineers while they work.

Once we reopen the road, we’ll replace the road closure with temporary traffic lights in the A760 allowing traffic to flow both ways. The lights will be in place for the remainder of this project.

We’re writing to residents and other local stakeholders to make them aware of our project and explain the details of our work. Please feel free to also share this information with anyone you think may be impacted by our project.

If you have any other enquiries about this project, please call project manager Scott McClymont on 07776 162 901 during office hours (8am to 4.30pm) or Customer Service on 0800 912 1700 outside these times.
