TRAFFIC: Turbine lorry crash blocks A713 near Castle Douglas

The A713 Castle Douglas to Ayr road is closed, after a lorry towing a turbine crashed and is now blocking the road. At around 10.45pm last night, the turbine trailer of a Daf lorry left the road. The vehicle was part of a convoy being escorted to the Brockloch Windfarm site at Carsphairn.

The road is fully closed at present and will remain so until the heavy lifting equipment can be taken to the crash site to recover the vehicle and load.

A full diversion has been implemented around the scene and drivers are asked to avoid the area where possible.

No-one was injured in the crash.”

– Inspector Campbell Moffat from Police Scotland’s Road Policing
