Gas Network Upgrade – A77 – Girvan

Gas Network Upgrade – A77 – Girvan

This Message is Distributed on Behalf of SGNDear {FIRST_NAME}I’m writing to let you know our plans to carry out two mains replacement projects investing approx. £580,000 in Girvan to ensure the local community continues to receive a safe and reliable gas supply for many years to come.KNOCKCUSHAN STREET – A77Starting on 9 January 2023 for approximately five weeks our engineers will be working to replace approximately 1.3km of old metallic gas main with new polyethylene PE pipe. To minimise disruption, we’ve worked closely with South Ayrshire Council and Amey to plan any necessary traffic management. As the A77 is a critical supply route between Scotland and Northern Ireland, we know this is a very busy road and we will be implementing the approach below:We will be working in Hamilton Street and on Knockcushan Street towards the swimming pool and will be implementing three-way temporary traffic lights at A77, Bridge Street/Hamilton Street/Dalrymple Street/Knockcushan Street. We will therefore be diverting all heavy goods vehicles from the Bridgemill Roundabout onto the B734 Coalpots Road to the Shallochpark Roundabout and back on to the A77.MONTGOMERIE STREET, GIRVANStarting on 13 February 2023 we will be working in Montgomerie Street, Girvan for approx. eight weeks. There will be a lane closure southbound with no access from the A77. Traffic will be diverted via the A77 Old Street, the A77 Bridge Street, left on to Hamilton Street and back on to Montgomerie Street. There will be two-way temporary traffic lights in operation at the junctions of Bourtreehall and Maxwell Street. We will also be working in various other streets across Girvan which will have minimal impact to residents and road users.We wish to assure you that our work will progress as quickly as possible and we’ll be doing everything we can to limit delays and disruption and to ensure the project remains on schedule, working extended hours and at weekends if required. Access will be maintained for emergency vehicles and we’ll ensure that temporary traffic lights will be manually controlled if necessary during peak periods.In addition we will have a dedicated project page on our website and information on social media.We’re writing to residents and other local stakeholders to make them aware of our project and explain the details of our work. Please feel free to also share this information with anyone you think may be impacted by our project.If you have any queries please don’t hesitate to contact me or our Customer Service Centre on 0800 912 1700 or email customer@sgn.co.uk .
