A1 Bankton Expansion Joint Replacement

9 December 2019

Overnight Maintenance



Essential expansion joint replacement works will take place overnight on the A1 at Bankton from Monday 9th December until Saturday 14th December 2019. The scheme will be carried out between the hours of 8pm and 6am, each night.

To allow this scheme to take place there will be a full overnight closure of the A198 between the two roundabouts at Bankton Junction. Closure of the bridge footpaths will also be required while construction is underway, pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcycles under 50cc who intend to cross the bridge will be marshalled safely across by the on-site team.

A198 southbound traffic will be diverted to take the first exit at the roundabout to join the A1 in an easterly direction towards Gladsmuir Junction.  Traffic will be directed to take the exit at Gladsmuir  Junction and at the roundabout, will take the third exit onto the B6363. At the following roundabout, traffic will take the third exit to join the A1 but in a westerly direction towards Bankton Junction. From here, traffic will exit at Bankton Junction and take the second exit at the roundabout to rejoin the A198.

A198 northbound traffic will be diverted to take the first exit at the roundabout to join the A1 westbound. Traffic will proceed towards Dolphingstone and will exit at the next junction. From here, traffic will take a right turn onto the A199, crossing the A1 and will take a further right turn to rejoin the A1 eastbound carriageway. Traffic will follow this route to take the exit at Bankton Junction and at the roundabout will take the first exit to rejoin the A198.
