The Ayrshire Roads Alliance, delivers shared Council roads and transportation services to communities across East and South Ayrshire. The Alliance is governed by a joint committee of elected members from the two Councils, with the service being led by East Ayrshire Council. It delivers roads services including roads maintenance, winter maintenance, design and infrastructure, traffic and transportation and road safety.
The shared service ensures a consistent standard of service delivery while improving service efficiency and resilience, against a backdrop of reducing public sector budgets. The Ayrshire Roads Alliance is responsible for: the maintenance of public roads, bridges, footways and footpaths; street lighting; traffic calming and road safety; roads design and structural design; parking enforcement and mobility; bus infrastructure and interchange facilities; winter maintenance.
The Ayrshire Roads Alliance is the first of its kind in Scotland and reflects the recommendations
of the Christie Commission. The Ayrshire Roads Alliance is a radical, sector-leading partnership expected to yield savings of more than £8m over the next ten years, through reduced management and administrative costs plus better deals for larger orders.
