Call for A701 road safety measures

Midlothian Lib Dems are calling for improved safety measures at the junction of the A701 and A703 near Bilston.

The group claims there have been a number of accidents involving speeding vehicles.

The Lib Dems are urging the council to introduce speed lowering measures and erect hazard signs on approach roads.

A council spokesman said: “There has now been additional road markings laid and the council’s road safety engineers are considering if other measures are required at this junction.”
