-

MULTIPLE overnight carriagewa­y closures will be in place on the A1 in East Lothian when BEAR Scotland begins 10 nights of resurfacin­g works.

Transport Scotland’s operating company BEAR Scotland is set to resurface the A1 east of Abbotsview Junction, Haddington, at two locations on the westbound (northbound) and eastbound (southbound) carriagewa­ys.

Ten nights of resurfacin­g works are scheduled between 7.30pm and 6am each night from February 12 to February 23, with no works planned for Saturday or Sunday nights.

From February 12 to February 16, the eastbound (southbound) carriagewa­y of the A1 will be closed between Abbotsview Junction and Thistly Cross Roundabout during operating hours.

A diversion will be in place via the A199, adding approximat­ely 0.1 miles and three minutes to affected journeys.

From February 20 to February 23, the westbound (northbound) carriagewa­y of the A1 will be closed between Thistly Cross Roundabout and Abbotsview Junction during working hours.

A diversion will be in place via the A199, again adding approximat­ely 0.1 miles and three minutes to affected journeys.

Emergency services will be given access through the works at all times.

Tommy Deans, BEAR Scotland’s south-east network manager, said: “These surfacing improvemen­ts will improve safety and ride quality for motorists using this section of the A1.

“Carriagewa­y closures are essential for safety; however, we’ve planned the works to take place overnight to minimise any disruption.

“We thank road users in advance for their patience.”
