Roslin Glen works begin

Work has finally started on repairing the road through Roslin Glen.

The B7003 – between Rosewell and Roslin – has been closed for more three years following a landslip which damaged sections of the roadway.

Midlothian Council was due to start work in February, but was delayed because of heavy rain and flooding, freezing temperatures and show showers.

A council spokesman told the Advertiser: “Preparatory work such as tree felling was undertaken last week to allow embankment works to commence.”
