A1 to have resurfacing work in Scotland

Transport Scotland’s operating company BEAR Scotland is planning ten nights of resurfacing works on the A1 at North Granthouse, Houndwood and South of Bankton next month.

The works will take place from 11 to 22 March with the road closed in both directions between Ayton Junction and Tower Farm Junction, the northbound carriageway will be closed at Abbotsview Junction, between Abbotsview Junction and Bankton Junction.

Relevant stakeholders have been consulted in advance to make them aware of the plans.

Tommy Deans, BEAR Scotland’s South East Network Manager, said: “These surfacing improvements will help to address the defects on this section of the A1 and will greatly improve the experience for motorists.

“It is essential for safety that we close the road during these works, however we’ve arranged for the project to take place overnight to minimize the impact.

“We thank motorists and the local community in advance for their patience and understanding. We’ll do all we can to complete the work as quickly and safely as possible.”
