A778 Link at Monkton
The now-unclassified southern end of the former A778

The A778 was a short A-road that existed briefly in the Prestwick area of Ayrshire.

Following the construction of the A77 Prestwick and Ayr bypass, the A78 was diverted at its southern end to meet it. The section of road vacated became the A778. It started on the A79 (former A77) in Monkton and headed north for about half a mile to reach the rerouted A78, which continued ahead.

Following the construction of the new A79 perimeter road for Prestwick Airport (that road crossed the runway at-grade and so a diversion was badly needed), that road was diverted away from Monkton, thus taking away the raison d'être for the A778. The road was therefore declassified.

The A778 number appeared in the AA Book of the Road 1974's itineraries, although it is likely that the road had already ceased to exist by then.
