Overnight roadworks at M9 Junction 1 (southbound) offslip
4 June 2015
ROAD IMPROVEMENT WORK BEGINS ON M9 JUNCTION 1 (SOUTHBOUND) OFFSLIP FROM 8 JUNE 2015
Essential night-time maintenance to improve the road surface on the M9 Junction 1 (southbound) offslip will take place from Monday 8 June until Friday 12 June.
The slip road will be closed from 20:00 until 06:00 on each of the four nights.
The 1.1km long stretch of road at Newbridge Junction, as well as lane 1 of the M9 adjacent to the works, will be closed during the works and a clearly signed diversion will be in place.
Traffic will be diverted to the M8 Junction 2 to travel eastbound towards Edinburgh, continuing to Hermiston Gait and then be directed back along the westbound M8 to the Junction 2 offslip, returning to Newbridge Roundabout by exiting the diversion at Junction 1 using the northbound off-slip.
Road users should allow for an additional journey time of around 11 minutes in completing the diversion. Travellers taking late evening or early morning departing flights from Edinburgh Airport should pay particular attention to this.
An important motorway off-slip connecting the Forth Road Bridge and Stirling to Edinburgh and Edinburgh Airport, this stretch of road is used by an average of 30,000 motorists each day.
The improvements to the road surface represent an investment of £140,000 by Transport Scotland to ensure motorists experience greater journey time reliability, continued safety and comfort.
