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.
|14 June 2007||Excavation work has started on the line of the new road, including the outline of the grade-separated junction near Dalkeith Park. This is an earlier start than anticipated.|
|14 September 2008||The road is completed and open, with corresponding improvements to the A720 Sheriffhall Roundabout also complete at the same time.|
