Construction of a new route to the north-east of Dalkeith, connecting the A68 to the south of the town to a new junction on the A720 Edinburgh City Bypass between Sheriffhall and the A1. Originally the road was to be dual two-lane standard, but now that the reopening of the parallel Waverley railway line has been approved, the traffic surveys have been revised and the route will be single two-lane with additional climbing lanes. The intermediate junction will still be grade-separated for safety reasons.
This scheme has been completed, and is no longer open to updates.
