The A713 Castle Douglas to Ayr road was shut just north of Parton following the incident which occurred at 22.45 on Monday 6th February.
A DAF lorry, part of a convoy heading to the Brockloch wind farm at Carsphairn, had left the road.
Recovery work took over 3 days during which the road was closed. The road has now reopened after inspections of its condition.
Some people might suggest that attempting to take these extremely long vehicles along narrow, winding roads is irresponsible – more, that to do so in darkness looks like negligence.
