DRIVERS are facing delays on a Beith trunk road while it gets resurfaced.

Scotland TranServ will shortly carry out the resurfacing of 1.2km of the A737 between Roadhead Roundabout and Clerksbridge Toll Roundabout, north of Beith.

In order to complete this programme of work as quickly and safely as possible, it will be necessary to implement a full weekend closure of the carriageway between 8pm on Friday, September 13 until 6am on Monday, September, 16.

Additional clearing works will take place prior to the start of resurfacing. In order to complete the necessary removal of this vegetation we require two overnight closures of the carriageway.

The road will be closed from 8pm on Wednesday, September 11 to 6am on Thursday, September 12 and from 8pm on Thursday, September 12th to 6am on Friday, September 13.

Local diversions will be in place throughout this short programme of works. Check or follow @trafficscotland on Twitter.
