Soil Engineering start date set on Sheriffhall GI

Transport Scotland has confirmed that Soil Engineering Geoservices working with Aecom will start work on a major ground investigation for a planned flyover on the A720 next week.

Overnight lane closures will be put in place on the A720, A7 and A6106 to enable the £1.2M ground investigation for the Sheriffhall roundabout improvements to be undertaken.

A spokesperson for Transport Scotland 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. The contractor will closely monitor the operation of the traffic management measures to ensure that delays are kept to a minimum.”

The ground investigation is expected to take 26 weeks, including testing and reporting.

The work is set to include mine entry investigation, boreholes using cable percussion, rotary and sonic techniques, trial pitting and geophysical surveys.
