A702 condition

When the new reservoir next to the A702 was completed, it was expected that Scottish Water would return Mauricewood Road, at the junction joining the A702, to a roadworthy condition.

The condition of this section of road is in urgent need of repair. The construction traffic used in building the reservoir took a great toll on the surface.

With the amount of vehicles using this road, particularly during rush hour, using the A702 as an alternative route into Penicuik, it is now a priority to return this section of road back to an acceptable standard.
