Overnight lane closures at Edinburgh's Sheriffhall roundabout for road improvement work
The Sherrifhall roundabout on the A720 Edinburgh City Bypass is to be refurbished with a £100,000 package of road safety improvements.
The work, which includes replacement of defective road studs, is scheduled to take place overnight towards the end of this month.
BEAR Scotland, the company in charge of road maintenance, said it would mean overnight lane closures for five nights from March 28.
The restrictions, designed to ensure the safety of roadworkers and the public, will be in place from 7.30pm to 6am each night.
Consultation has taken place with emergency services and other stakeholders to share information about the project in advance.
Strict physical distancing protocols, in line with Scottish Government guidance, will be in place to protect teams and ensure they remain safe on site.
Tommy Deans, BEAR Scotland’s south east network manager, said: “These works will help to improve safety on this section of the A720. We’ve scheduled them overnight in order to minimise any disruption.”
