A Dreghorn road closure for grass cutting work is causing long tailbacks.

The A71 between Corsehill Mount roundabout and East Ayrshire's boundary
is closed from 6am to 8pm Saturday, September 9.

This to carry out grass cutting work, with motorists instructed to follow diversions.

One motorist complained the traffic currently going via Springside is backed up all the way from Crosshouse.
