  • Overnight closure Monday 20 November 2023

The slip road onto the southbound A1 from Old Craighall Roundabout will be closed from 20:00 until 04:00 on the night of Monday 20 November, to allow Transport Scotland’s operating company BEAR Scotland to repair damaged road studs.

Traffic wishing to join the A1 southbound from Old Craighall Roundabout will be diverted onto the A1 northbound to turn at Queen Margaret University Junction and join the A1 southbound from there. This diversion will add an estimated 2.2 miles and 4 minutes to affected journeys.

Access to Old Craighall Roundabout from the Musselburgh Service Area will also be restricted, with a signed diversion in place via the B6415, Old Craighall Road, Sheriffhall Roundabout and the A720.

Tommy Deans, BEAR Scotland’s South East Network Manager, said: “We thank road users in advance for their patience while our team carries out these essential repairs.

“We’ve planned these works to take place overnight in order to minimise disruption, however please plan ahead and allow extra time for your journey if you need to travel around Old Craighall on the night of Monday 20 November.”
