Dalkeith road repair bill nears £2 million

Repairs to a major commuting route in Dalkeith are likely to cost almost £2 million, councillors have been told.

Work to cure subsidence on Old Dalkeith Road at the bottom of Lugton Brae could see costs spiral by a further £1.150 million.

Midlothian Council heard last week that the repair cost had risen significantly from the original £744,000 estimate.
