Road closure near Tranent
A £130,000 investment by Transport Scotland to resurface the A1 Dolphingstone westbound on slip road will benefit motorists by providing a smoother and safer surface.
The slip road will be closed on Friday, February 22, at 9pm and will be re-opened on Monday, Friday 25, by 6am to enable the works to be undertaken safely.
To provide a safety working area for the workforce during the works the Dolphingstone westbound off slip road will be closed, lane closures will also be in place on the A1 westbound and on the A199 Musselburgh to Tranent Road.
Signed diversions will be in place for the duration of the works. Motorists wishing to use Dolphingstone westbound on slip road will be diverted east along the A1 to the Bankton Junction where they will be directed west on the A1.
Motorists wishing to use the Dolphingstone westbound off slip road will be diverted west along the A1 to the Wallyford Junction where they will be directed to return east on the A1 to the Dolphingstone eastbound off slip road, where they can resume their normal journey.
Commenting on the works Ian Stewart, BEAR Scotland’s Operating Company Representative in the South East, said: “These works are being carried out over the weekend to minimise delays to motorists, we would however encourage motorists to plan ahead and allow additional time for their journeys.”
