£220,000 road repairs planned for Dumfries

ESSENTIAL repairs to Dumfries roads will take place over the next three months - at a cost of £220,000.

However, the public are being warned that the necessary maintenance will require closures and diversions.
Dumfries and Galloway Council say alternative routes will be signposted during road closures, and that the works will be dependent on weather conditions.
Council officers are liaising with businesses, bus operators, transport agencies and the emergency services on travel management and minimising disruption to services.
Surfacing work was completed at the junction of Annan Road and Brooms Road last weekend, but the upcoming programme of planned works and road closures includes:
Lockerbie Road (A709) – resurfacing, with preparatory work this Friday to Saturday and road closed Sunday from 8 am to 1 pm.

Brooms Road, between Leafield Road and Clerkhill – resurfacing, with work to be done in two phases, with the road closed Saturday April 2 to Friday April 15. Road closures will be needed for some of the work.
