Roadworks - Torthorwald to Dumfries

Major road works are scheduled to take place on the A709 between Torthorwald to Dumfries from 9am on Saturday 14 until 5pm on Monday 23 October.

A road closure will be required between the C7 Catherinefield Road/A709 Roundabout and the layby south west of the C8 Low Road junction.

Diversions will be in place during the closure:

  • The main diversion for HGVs and other traffic will be from Lockerbie via the A709, B7076, A701, A75 and vice versa.
  • A local diversion will also be in place at Lochmaben via B7020, A701 and A75 and vice versa.

Signs will be installed in advance to inform road users and cater for businesses affected by this closure.

This work will include the use of an innovative new product called MacRebur which incorporates recycled plastic pellets into asphalt for a greener and stronger surface. We are trialing the product at various locations across the region.
