(Route A70, Muirkirk) (Temporary Road Closures) Order 2020
On 25/08/20 the Council, in exercise of the powers conferred on it by Section 14(1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, as amended, and of all other enabling powers, made the above-named Order, which will make it unlawful for any person to drive or cause or permit to be driven any vehicle on the length of road at the times stated below (except vehicles engaged on the resurfacing works), by reason of works to be executed on or near the road.
PHASED ROAD CLOSURES DAILY BETWEEN 08:00 hrs and 18:00hrs. A70, east of Muirkirk: From Ponesk O.C.C.S. eastwards for a distance of 1200 m. Closed on Sat 05/09/20, Sun 06/09/20, Sat 12/09/20 and Sun 13/09/20. These works are weather dependent but it is hoped that the resurfacing works will be completed during the first weekend but the second weekend road closure will only be implemented if required. Alternative Route: via B743 to Strathaven, A71 Stonehouse, B7078 to Douglas and to A70 and vice versa.
Vehicular access for residents/owners/occupiers within the closures will be permitted to and from their properties when it is safe to do so and when directed by a Traffic Marshal, but not through the works site. Emergency access will be maintained during the closures and through the works site.
Pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the closures. The Order shall come into force at 08:00 hrs on 05/09/20 until 18:00 hrs on 13/09/20, or until the works are completed whichever is earlier and the Order will be implemented only when appropriate signs are displayed.
