MP Calls for Action on A720 City Bypass and Sheriffhall Roundabout

Danielle Rowley MP raised the issue of the A720 city bypass and Sheriffhall Roundabout in the House of Commons yesterday (28th November) on behalf of constituents faced with “constant gridlock” when travelling.

The Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Region deal, signed on 7th August 2018, committed £120 million for transport improvements to Sheriffhall Roundabout. Yet commuters are still faced with heavy delays when travelling on the bypass, particularly at rush hour.

Ms Rowley asked what conversations the Scottish Secretary has had with Scottish Government Minsters on the subject.

Danielle Rowley MP said: “I have been inundated with calls, emails and letters referring to the “constant gridlock” of the A720 City Bypass.

“Whilst I await David Mundell MP’s answer, I have written to the Scottish Transport Minister to ask for an update on what plans the Scottish Government has for improving the Sheriffhall Roundabout, and what other efforts are being made to help commuters using the bypass.

“Despite this being a devolved issue, I will always make representations on behalf of my constituents on issues that are important to them.”
