THE proposed resurfacing works for a busy North Ayrshire road have been postponed.

Due to local authority roadworks on the diversion route, Scotland TranServ has put the works on hold for the A737 north of Beith.

Work had been due to take place from Friday July 26 until Monday July 29 for the resurfacing of the 1.2KM stretch from the trunk road between Roadhead Roundabout and Clerksbridge Toll Roundabout.

Jonathan Dyer, Scotland TranServ’s assistant engineer, said: “We work in consultation with a number of partners including local authorities, emergency services and key stakeholders in the planning of our works.

“It has however come to light that local authority schemes have been scheduled for our planned diversion route.”

The national organisation hope to re-plan the works later in the year.
