ROADWORKS AT LARGS-SKELMORLIE A78
Published: 5 Oct 2011 09:300 comments
From Sunday 9 October until Wednesday 12 October temporary off-peak traffic lights will be in operation on the A78 to keep traffic flowing while Amey's team of bridge engineers and specialist sub-contractors undertake detailed remedial works on behalf of Transport Scotland.
* The remedial works will repair tidal scouring at the base of the sea wall and prevent further erosion of the underlying bedrock
* If these works are not carried out, the scouring of the wall could deteriorate further and this could lead to the subsidence of the A78 road above
* The damage was caused during high winds and storm surges which battered most of the west coast earlier this month
* Planned works include the installation of stone work and concrete to create a new scour protection at the base of the sea wall
On Sunday work will be on the Largs seawall but it will move towards Skelmorlie on subsequent days.
