Penicuik road closures

Midlothian Council is resurfacing Penicuik High Street, including the junction with Bridge Street and West Street. The current surface is in very poor condition and the resurfacing work is essential. It is being carried out as part of the current town centre improvement project to minimise disruption. However, some road closures are necessary.

High Street

The High Street (between Kirkhill and West Street) will be closed from Monday 25 to Friday 29 March and from Monday 1 April to Friday 5 April. During these dates, there will be no vehicle access to the parking area on the High Street. Access will be maintained to and from St Kentigern Way into Kirkhill and from Bridge Street into West Street.

Bridge Street

Bridge Street (The Square) and the West Street junction with High Street will also be closed on Saturday 23 March and Sunday 24 March, and on Saturday 6 April and Sunday 7 April. Vehicle diversions will be in place.

There will also be changes to the following bus services during the road closures:

Lothian Buses 15, X15, 37, N37, X37 Stagecoach 101/102
