Drivers face months of disruption due to city bypass work
Ground investigations will take place at the Sheriffhall roundabout on the Edinburgh bypass.
Drivers are facing months of disruption due to the construction of a new flyover on the Edinburgh city bypass.
Ground investigations are due to begin at the Sheriffhall junction on the A720 on Monday, February 12.
Plans for the flyover, which is designed to ease congestion, were revealed in April 2017.
The investigations will last around three months and traffic management measures will be required to ensure the work is carried out safely.
This will include overnight lane closures on the westbound section of the A720 as well as overnight closures of lanes on the roundabout, the A7 and the A6106.

A Transport Scotland spokesman said: "These ground investigations are a vital part of the design work to build a flyover at Sheriffhall and will inform that work as we progress our plans to deliver improvements at this busy junction on the A720 Edinburgh city bypass.
"We apologise for any inconvenience these works will cause and would thank road users and local people in advance for their patience during the works."
He continued: "The contractor will closely monitor the operation of the traffic management measures to ensure that delays are kept to a minimum.
"While we do not expect major disruption to traffic, we would ask drivers to plan their journeys in advance using the Traffic Scotland website, Twitter feed or Traffic Scotland radio."
