Plan to reopen Lugton Brae

Lugton Brae in Dalkeith is to reopen to all traffic except heavy goods vehicles.

It is anticipated that the road, which on August 16 was closed to all but local access and public transport, will be open again by Monday, October 8.

The introduction of a Temporary Restriction Order was to prevent drivers from using Lugton Brae as an unofficial diversion after the A6106 closed in July because of subsidence.
