Sherrifhall Roundabout on the A720 Edinburgh City Bypass is set to be refurbished with a £100,000 package of road safety improvements including replacement of defective road studs road studs, or “cats eyes” which will greatly improve visibility of lane markings at night.

To ensure the safety of roadworkers and the travelling public during these works, lane closures will be in place on and around the A720 Sheriffhall Roundabout from 19:30 to 06:00 for five nights, beginning on 28 March.

Consultation has been carried out with emergency services and other relevant stakeholders to make them aware of the plans and share information about the project in advance.

Strict physical distancing protocols, in line with Scottish Government guidance, are in place to protect teams and ensure they remain safe on site.

Tommy Deans, BEAR Scotland’s South East Network Manager, said:

“These works will help to improve safety on this section of the A720. We’ve scheduled them overnight in order to minimise any disruption.”
