A77 Safety Group

Highway engineering improvement, 2006

The A77 links the central belt of Scotland with Ayreshire and the west coast ports of Stranraer and Cairnryan. The route is a mixture of motorway, dual and single carriageways and had gained the unenviable reputation as one of the most dangerous roads in Scotland. The A77 Safety group of The Strathclyde Police, Scottish Trunk Road Network, South Ayrshire Council, Amey, Strathclyde Safety Camera Partnership and West Sound Radio working together with drivers and local industries have achieved a remarkable reduction in collisions under the banner: ‘Reckless Driving Wrecks Lives’.
