S5W-12573: Miles Briggs (Lothian)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 9 November 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what plans it has to improve the Gogar roundabout to improve traffic flow eastbound.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 22 November 2017

The A8 and Gogar Roundabout do not form part of the Trunk Road Network and therefore this is a matter for City of Edinburgh Council as Local Roads Authority.

The Scottish Government has committed £20 million as part of the Edinburgh and South East City Region Deal to improving public transport infrastructure in West Edinburgh. Although the specific proposals have yet to be finalised, the Scottish Government understands that improvements to the A8 at Gogar Roundabout and the Maybury Junction are both being considered by City of Edinburgh Council.
