Dunragit Bypass, Eastbound
Dunragit (Scottish Gaelic: Dłn Reicheit) is a village on the A75, between Stranraer and Glenluce in Dumfries and Galloway. The 3-mile bypass, which opened at the end of March 2014, takes the busy A75 around the south side of the village and has improved safety for road users by increasing the number of overtaking facilities in both east and westbound directions. The project involved re-routing traffic away from the Challoch rail overbridge, which for many years had required high-sided vehicles to divert from the A75 onto the side road network (LinkExternal link Transport Scotland).
The A75
The A75 is a Primary Trunk Road; the main through route for traffic between northern England and Northern Ireland (more specifically the ferry terminal from Cairnryan to Belfast and Larne). It runs for 95½ miles between Stranraer and the A74(M) at Gretna, close to the Border with England and the M6 Motorway. Although it is an important trunk route (it is also a Euroroute, the E18), and has been subject to a number of upgrades over the years, the majority of the road is still single-carriageway although there are a few short dual carriageway sections and some three-lane sections which allow overtaking in one direction.
