A NEW one-way system is planned for a street linking Dunbar to the A1.

Members of East Lothian Council’s cabinet agreed for work to be undertaken with a view to a one-way road on Beveridge Row, southbound from the A1087 Edinburgh Road to the junction with Bayview Circus, being created.

The move is one of a series of new or amended Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) being drawn up.

Councillor John McMillan, the local authority’s spokesman for environment, economic development and tourism, highlighted the move.

He said: “East Lothian Council works closely with representatives of local communities and businesses across the county who may express concerns about a range of travel related issues.

“The new or amended TROs approved today are a number of measures aimed at improving or enhancing the free movement of traffic whilst supporting other road users and have resulted from community approaches.”

As well as the change to Beveridge Row, there are new TROs proposed for Musselburgh, Tranent and North Berwick.

  • The introduction of no waiting restrictions at access to Farmer Autocare, Market Street, Musselburgh.
  • Two new disabled parking bays for use by blue badge holders only by St Michael’s Church, Musselburgh.
  • Introduction of no waiting restrictions along the west side of Bush Street, Musselburgh, to improve the free flow of traffic.
  • Move Bus Stop markings on Tranent High Street further east and move single yellow line to other side of relocated bus stop markings to allow public service vehicles to fully access bus box.
  • Introduction of no waiting restrictions at St Baldreds Road/St Baldreds Crescent, North Berwick, junction in interests of road safety.

Mr McMillan added: “Over time traffic flows and patterns can change and these new TROs reflect requests from local communities and businesses to introduce measures that will help address safety concerns and encourage greater accessibility to our town centres.”
