Resurfacing of A78 Ashcraig House, between Largs & Skelmorlie.

Scotland TranServ, on behalf of Transport Scotland is proposing the resurfacing of 2.5km of the A78 at Ashcraig House between Largs and Skelmorlie. Due to the nature of the trunk road in this area, and to protect the health and safety of our workers and the travelling public, we are proposing the closure of the trunk road over two separate weekends, with diversions in place. 

Jonathan Dyer, Scotland TranServ’s Project Design Lead on the project said: “We have been working in consultation with local community councils and emergency services to schedule these works for a time of minimal disruption. Scotland TranServ is proposing to combine two resurfacing schemes into one to further reduce the impact. “The proposed resurfacing scheme is being scheduled ahead of the busy Easter holiday period, and in advance of the summer season. This is a lengthy resurfacing programme, and therefore will require closure of the A78 over two weekends.

Works are currently proposed over the following times:

  • 8pm Friday 5th to 6am Monday 8th April
  • 8pm Friday 12th to 6am Monday 15th April
