A KEY route to and from Haddington's Tesco supermarket is now shut for two weeks, with drivers facing a lengthy diversion.

Three-way temporary traffic lights were previously in place at a section of Newton Port between Fortune Avenue and Calder's Lawn - the access road to Tesco - ahead of the closure.

But starting from today (Monday, May 13) and continuing until next Friday (May 24), the section of road has now been closed completely while footpath repairs take place. A signed diversion is in place.

Southbound traffic is being diverted via Victoria Park, Lydgait, Hope Park, Court Street and Market Street to enter Newton Port from the south.

Northbound traffic is being diverted via Market Street, Hardgate, Dunbar Road, Herdmanflatt, Florabank Road and Victoria Park (see below tweet for more diversion route details).

The road closure is in place during weekdays, with the temporary traffic lights returning at other times.
