You may have noticed the road closure sign on the entrance to Kippford from the A710 Dalbeattie Road.

It rather helpfully notes that for one day next week the road will be closed for the day. We've been trying to contact Dumfries and Galloway Council to find out the logistics of this, as clearly closing the only road in and out of the village for a day is a safety concern.

We assume there will be some contra-flow in place while the resurfacing takes place. So far we have been unable to get details. More if we can find out.

UPDATE:  The Council are performing surface dressing around the region and think they may be at Kippford by Tuesday, but possibly Wednesday or Thursday.  There will be access in and out of the village during the works, however  there me be a 10 or 15 minute delay at some points.  Please factor in additional travelling time.
