Drone footage highlights progress on A77 Maybole Bypass

Transport Scotland has hailed the “significant progress” made in constructing the A77 Maybole Bypass since Michael Matheson, cabinet secretary for transport, infrastructure and connectivity, marked the start of work in May last year.

A wide range of work has been undertaken by contractor Wills Bros Civil Engineering over the last nine months including:

  • site clearance
  • diversion of public utilities
  • drainage work.

Just under a quarter of a million cubic metres of earthworks has also been excavated, construction has commenced on the Alloway Road bridge, and the underpass at the southern extent of the new bypass is nearing completion. A new culvert to carry the Brochloch Burn has also been installed.

Construction is expected to finish in summer 2021.
