Plans for feasibility study to upgrade A75

The UK government has announced plans to boost connectivity across the UK, with improved transport infrastructure.

The measures were published following the interim report of Sir Peter Hendy’s Union Connectivity Review which sets out how a UK Strategic Transport Network would help deliver this ambition.

To jump-start some of the projects identified within the Union Connectivity Review, the government has committed £20m towards exploring the development of projects, such as upgrading the A75 between Gretna, Dumfries and Stranraer, a key route for south-west Scotland and Northern Ireland but almost entirely single-carriageway. The UK government will work closely with the Scottish government on any feasibility study.
