A702 at Nine Mile Burn

6 April 2020

Overnight Maintenance




Essential maintenance works will take place on the A702 at Nine Mile Burn between 8pm on Monday 6th April and 6am on Tuesday 7th April 2020.

The works will benefit over 7,000 vehicles using this section of the A702 each day, by improving the condition of the carriageway and reducing the need for more extensive maintenance in the future.

To allow this scheme to take place there will be full overnight closure between the A766, north of Nine Mile Burn and Melbourne Junction with a signed diversion route in operation.

Northbound traffic will be diverted to exit the A702 via a right turn onto the A721 at Melbourne Crossroads. Traffic will proceed on this route in an easterly direction to reach the A72 Kirkdean Junction and will turn left to join the A72. From here, traffic will join the A701 and will pass through Blyth Bridge, Romanno Bridge, and Lamancha to head towards Leadburn. At Leadburn Crossroads, traffic will turn left to remain on the A701 in the direction of Penicuik. Traffic will then be instructed to turn left onto the A766, Carlops Road where it will be able to rejoin the A702, north of Nine Mile Burn and diversion will end.

Southbound traffic will follow the same diversion route but in the opposite direction.

This scheme has been planned in consultation with Transport Scotland, Traffic Scotland, the emergency services, and Scottish Borders Council.
