A SECTION of the A70 ‘Lang Whang’ in Carnwath is to be closed for a week to allow for essential resurfacing work.

The road will be closed between the B7008 Harburn Road and A721 Carnwath from Sunday 13 May at 7am for seven days.

The alternative route will be via the B7008, A71, A704, and A706 with diversion signs in place.

Gordon MacKay, the head of the council’s Roads and Transportation, said: “We apologise in advance for any inconvenience these vital works may cause.

“I would ask that anyone who is travelling in the area takes note of the restrictions in place, follows the appropriate diversion and leaves extra time for their journey.

“If the work is completed earlier than planned we will re-open the road immediately.”
