Improvements at the A737 in Beith, Scotland, have moved a step closer with the publication of draft road orders.
This marks the start of the statutory consultation period for this scheme which will deliver an overtaking opportunity for northbound traffic and two new roundabouts on this short stretch of the A737.
A public exhibition is to be held in Beith Community Centre on Friday 11 November to let local residents and road users view and comment on the plans for the route.
Transport Minister Humza Yousaf (pictured) said: “The Scottish government is working hard to improve the trunk road network in North Ayrshire and also right across the country. This road improvement scheme at Beith, underlines our commitment to communities in North Ayrshire and the surrounding areas.
“At the same time, we are currently progressing the nearby Dalry Bypass scheme with works expected to begin by the end of March 2017.
“When completed, the A737 Improvements at Beith scheme will provide new junctions at Beith to help improve the road system around the town, will also improve traffic flow and bring additional road safety benefits.
“I would urge road users and anyone in the area with an interest to visit the community centre next Friday and see for themselves the plans and let us hear their views.”
