Petition: A75 and A77 Pothole Petition

18.07.17 Finlay Petition


You can access the petition here:


The petition states: 

We, the undersigned, call on The Scottish Government to take immediate action to fix the 1000’s of potholes and improve the crucial A75 and A77 trunk roads in Dumfries and Galloway and Ayrshire, and to give a long-term commitment to ensure once and for all these routes are fit for purpose.

We demand the roads are maintained to the standard befitting the A75, a designated ‘Euro-Route’ and the A77 which are both vital roads linking Scotland, The North of England and Ireland, with the UK’s third busiest port at Cairnryan.

 Finlay potholes

Why is this important?

Many of you have raised your concerns surrounding the poor state of our roads. I have highlighted these concerns on numerous occasions in the Scottish Parliament.

In addition, I have written to successive Scottish Government Transport Secretaries, driven the route with Transport Scotland and highlighted countless issues in the local press.

Despite my actions, we are yet to see sufficient investment in our roads. The aim of this petition is to send a clear message to those responsible.


Please note: When you sign this petition we will publish your name along with the petition, but not your email address or postcode. We may contact you to invite you to take part in discussions about this and other local issues.
