Scotland's Castle started this petition to Users of Edinburgh City Bypass, A720. Edinburgh residents, East Lothian, Midlothian, West Lothian.

Edinburgh City Bypass (A720) opened in 1980 to cut down on congestion on local domestic roads and cut down on time to Airport & other attractions.

The bypass remains relatively unchanged.

Edinburgh City Bypass, is absolutely unfit for purpose, especially at peak times, something drastically has to be done.


Having been snarled up with the traffic, we know first hand of the issues.

Some ideas -

More Police patrols to stop drivers travelling at 50miles an hour in the outside lane, even when they can clearly see the back log of traffic behind them.

The outside carriageway to be used at peak times for vehicles travelling to The Straiton junction and beyond (East bound) & similar to Hermiston Gate and beyond ( West Bound)

Anything above a transit van are banned from the outside lane between 6am & 9am, then 4pm & 6pm in the evening.

We the undersigned are asking the Transport secretary to upgrade this road and help every day commuters have a stress free journey.
