Overnight works commence Wednesday 7 September 2022.

Overnight works to resurface the slip road off the eastbound A720 Edinburgh City Bypass onto Hermiston Gait Roundabout are set to begin on Wednesday 7 September.

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

For the safety of workers and road users during these works, the eastbound carriageway of the A720 between Gogar Roundabout and Hermiston Gait Roundabout will be closed from 20:30 to 06:00 on the nights of 7, 8 and 9 September.

A diversion route will be signposted via South Gyle Broadway, Bankhead Drive, Broomhouse Road (B701) and Calder Road (A71).

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 the safety of the workforce that we close the carriageway during these works, however, we’ve scheduled this during overnight hours to minimise any disruption.

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

Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead before setting out by checking the Traffic Scotland website www.trafficscotland.org for up-to-date travel information and allowing extra time for their journey.
