S5W-03082: Miles Briggs (Lothian)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 22 September 2016

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-02524 by Humza Yousaf on 21 September 2016, which improvements on the A720, in addition to work at Sherrifhall, it is committed to undertaking, and when these will be made.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 6 October 2016

The work referred to in S5W-02524 and in S5W-00568 answered on 17 June 2016 is currently underway and it would not be appropriate to prejudge the outcome of this work.

In the meantime, Transport Scotland continues to assess the need for localised improvements on the A720 and has allocated over £2M for improvements on this route during 2016-17. A further £110K has already been spent on a scheme which was designed to improve lane discipline and safety at Sheriffhall Roundabout.
