S5W-05239: Miles Briggs (Lothian)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 30 November 2016

To ask the Scottish Government what its response is to the research by Inrix Roadway Analytics that suggests that four of the UK's worst traffic bottlenecks are on the Edinburgh city bypass.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 13 December 2016

The Scottish Government recognises the important role that Edinburgh and its region plays in the national economy and that the A720 plays in the strategic transport network. Transport Scotland is continuing to invest in work to identify how best to mitigate congestion on the A720.

I refer the Member to the answers provided for S5W-03082 and S5W-03084 on 6 October 2016 for further information on Transport Scotland’s on-going investment in localised improvements on this route in 2016/17.
