BBC NEWS | Scotland | South of Scotland | Van driver killed in A76 accident

The incident has prompted renewed calls for an upgrade of the route.

You can upgrade any road as much as you like. So long as people are willing to drive well in excess of the design speed of the road, in vehicles that may not be working properly, you will still get crashes like this.

cf. A82. An upgraded road that still sees regular fatal crashes.
