SURFACING IMPROVEMENTS AT MILLERHILL JUNCTION ON THE A720

September 21, 2022

  • Overnight slip road closure 3 October 2022

Overnight works to resurface the slip road exiting the westbound A720 Edinburgh City Bypass at Millerhill Junction are scheduled for the night of Monday 3 October 2022.

Transport Scotland’s operating company BEAR Scotland will undertake the project.

For the safety of workers and road users, the Millerhill Junction westbound off-slip will be closed between 20:30 and 06:00 on the night of Monday 3 October.

During the closure, a diversion route for westbound traffic will be signposted via Sheriffhall Roundabout and the eastbound A720 to exit via the Millerhill Junction eastbound off-slip. This diversion will add an estimated 4 minutes and 3 miles to affected journeys.

Consultation has taken place with relevant stakeholders in advance of these works to make them aware of the traffic management arrangements and to minimise any inconvenience.

Tommy Deans, BEAR Scotland’s South East Network Manager, said: “These surfacing improvements will address and repair defects in the road surface such as potholes and cracks, creating safer and smoother journeys for motorists.

“It is essential for safety that we close the slip road during these works, however we’ve scheduled them to be carried out during overnight hours to minimise any disruption.

“We thank motorists in advance for their patience while our teams carry out these improvements.”
