INSTALLATION OF COMMUNICATIONS CABLING TO COMMENCE FRIDAY 24TH MAY 2019

Essential maintenance work to install new copper communications cable on the slip road from A8 to M8 westbound at Newbridge Roundabout will take place from 8pm on Friday 24th May until 6am on Saturday 25th May.

This work will ensure the continued safe and reliable operation of the network at this location, benefitting around 22,000 vehicles using this route each day, by providing improved road traffic information and introducing new technology.

This work requires a full overnight closure of the slip road between 8pm on Friday 24th May until 6am on Saturday 25th May. A signed diversion route will be in operation.

Daytime hard-shoulder closures will also take place from 09.30 until 3.30pm, from Monday 20th May until Thursday 23rd May.

The diversion route for the overnight closures is: vehicles will exit Newbridge Roundabout onto M9 Northbound. Exit M9 Junction 3 then return southbound on M9 to M8 where the diversion ends.

This work has been planned in consultation with Transport Scotland, Traffic Scotland, the emergency services and City of Edinburgh Council.
