Road closure

THE B769 Stewarton Road in Newton Mearns will be closed from Monday, September 24 until Friday, September 28.

This is to ensure the safe operation of essential carriageway works required in advance of planned transportation of Scottish Power equipment on oversized vehicles.

The closure will affect part of the road from a point 750m north east of the Bannerbank quarry access road to a point about 150m south west of the access road.

An alternative route is for traffic on the north east side of the closure to proceed north east on the B769 Stewart Road to Malletsheugh Road, then travel east on this road to the A77, go south on the A77 to its junction with the B778 in Fenwick, west on the B778 to its junction with the B769 in Stewart, then north east on the B769 – Old Glasgow Road/Stewarton Road – to the other side of the closure.

The same route is good for traffic heading in the opposite direction.
