Extended TitleA1/Queen Margaret University Junction Construction Works
Extended Description

East Lothian Council (ELC) intends to carry out works by way of alterations to existing the A1/Queen Margaret University road junction by formation of slip roads, an underpass, retaining wall, roundabout, foot and cycle paths and SUDS ponds. The junction is located between Newcraighall junction to the north and the Old Craighall junction (with the A720 city bypass) to the south on the A1 road.

In 2005 ELC, through the notice of intention to develop procedure then in place, gained planning approval (ref: 04/01292/NID) for the formation of a new junction within the A1 trunk road and the formation of an access road at the site of the then proposed Queen Margaret University (QMU), Musselburgh. The junction was designed with slip roads to both northbound and southbound carriageways of the A1 and an underpass providing connection to either side of the development below the A1. The proposal was to construct the junction and access road in 2 phases. Phase one consisting of the part of the junction to be formed on the north side of the A1 trunk road and also the proposed access road. Phase 2 consisting of the part of the junction to be formed on the south side of the A1 trunk road.

Amey Consultants were appoint by ELC to develop the detailed design to the part built in phase 1 which serves Queen Margaret University (QMU) and campus. The current junction access provision is via on slip and off slip to the A1 southbound carriageway. It is this phase 2 that is being put forward as the A1/QMU junction project and now proposes the completion of full grade separated junction with an amended scheme to that proposed through previous application.

It is anticipated that construction works will start sometime in late August early September 2020 and it is estimated that the duration of the construction project will be 12 months, although this is subject to change.

The estimated contract value is 10 000 000 GBP.

Scope to be defined.
