Motorists had to sit through 45 minute queues this morning to get through roadworks northbound. 
Roads company Transerv confirmed that a utility company had been carrying out roadworks just to the north of Inverkip.

However, traffic heading northwards were queuing through Wemyss Bay waiting to get through.

On passing the roadworks, no utility workers could be seen at the site which had been fenced and barriered off.
