Overnight works to refresh road markings on the A720 Edinburgh City Bypass are set to begin on Monday 7th August for 19 nights, not including Saturdays or Sundays.
Transport Scotland’s operating company BEAR Scotland will carry out the works.
For the safety of workers and road users, the A720 will be closed in phases with signed diversion routes in place.
The first week of the works will be completed between the hours of 22:00 and 06:00, with the remainder of the works completed between 20:30 and 06:00 each night.
Tommy Deans, BEAR Scotland’s Southeast Network Manager, said: “These road marking refreshments will improve their retro-reflectivity on the road, creating safer journeys for motorists.
“It is essential for the safety of the workforce that we close the carriageway, however we’ve scheduled the works during overnight hours to minimise any disruption.
“We thank motorists 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.traffic.gov.scot for up-to-date travel information and allowing extra time for their journey.
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.Tweet Share on Facebook
