A720 Lothianburn: Overnight road closure planned for surfacing work on westbound slip road
An overnight closure is planned on the A720 Lothianburn westbound slip road on Friday, 24 April.
Transport Scotland’s operating company, BEAR Scotland, is planning to renew approximately 100m of the trunk road over one night.
For the safety of workers and road users, the A720 Lothianburn westbound on-slip will be closed from 8:30pm until 6am.
The diversion will be via the A720 heading eastbound to Straiton Junction, where traffic can turn and rejoin the A720 heading westbound and resume their journey.
The diversion routes will add an estimated six minutes and four miles to affected journeys.
Tommy Deans, BEAR Scotland’s South East Network Manager, said: “These surfacing improvements will significantly improve safety and ride quality for motorists on this section of the A720 Edinburgh City Bypass.
“The closure of the westbound on-slip at the Lothianburn junction is essential to ensure the safety of workers and road users.”Real time journey information is available from Traffic Scotland on www.trafficscotland.org
