Mauricewood Road Roundabout

We are currently carrying out the work to divert the raw water mains pipe at Mauricewood Road in Penicuik. These essential water mains are used to supply Glencorse Water Treatment Works, which provides drinking water for most of Edinburgh and parts of Midlothian.

The purpose of this work, which is being done on behalf of the housing developer Taylor Wimpey, is to make way for the construction of a new roundabout at the junction of Mauricewood Road and the A702.

Work is continuing on the diversion of the raw water mains pipe at Mauricewood Road in Penicuik. Due to the engineering challenges we have faced and the complicated nature of this work it is proving to be taking longer than expected. Currently one pipeline is fully complete and installed and another two are ready and waiting to be installed in a deep trench.

Road Closure

As of Monday 5th June Mauricewood Road will be closed at the junction of Bellwood Road and Biggar Road for 8 weeks.Local diversion will be in place. Please note the A702 will be unaffected during this work.

The 101 Stagecoach bus service will be affected by this closure. City bound along the A701 turn left at Gowkley Moss roundabout, along Bush Loan Road, turn right onto the A702, normal route and on to the city. Southbound – as above in reverse. All bus stops along the diversion will be served. Please check the Stagecoach website for any updates. 

Our delivery partners Farrans are working days from 5 to 6 and sometimes 7 days a week in order to minimise the overall duration.

The target date for completion is Autumn 2017.
