The eagerly awaited final section of Harelaw road connecting the A6106 (Millerhill Road) is now open. This key piece of infrastructure will provide increased connectivity, smoother traffic flow, and enhanced accessibility for residents and businesses alike.

The road, a critical link in the Shawfair development plan, represents a significant milestone in the ongoing efforts to improve transportation infrastructure in Midlothian. The new road will provide a vital link between major thoroughfares and will complete the loop road connecting Shawfair Train Station to the rest of the masterplan. The road is sustainably designed to incorporate current drainage and landscape standards to fit in with the surrounding environment.

In addition to its practical benefits, the road is expected to open opportunities for economic growth and development in Shawfair and the wider Midlothian region by improving accessibility and reducing travel times. Sustainable public transport options further complement this progress, with the distance between Shawfair and Edinburgh being only a 14 minute train journey away with pedestrian friendly footpaths now lining the full route to the station.

“We are thrilled to announce the opening of the road, a project that represents a significant step forward for transportation infrastructure in Shawfair,” said Nick Waugh (Director – Shawfair LLP). “This new road will not only improve connectivity and ease congestion but also contribute to the ongoing revitalisation of our community, paving the way for continued growth and prosperity.”
