Winter on Midlothian roads

Our winter service

Our winter service runs from 1 October to 31 March.

During this time we monitor conditions across our road network, and we grit and clear roads and footways in snow and freezing weather. We give priority to routes according to our Winter Service Policy and Operational plan (PDF).

We maintain the public road network in Midlothian apart from these trunk roads. They are the responsibility of Transport Scotland:

  • A720 City of Edinburgh Bypass
  • A68
  • A702
