The Community Council has submitted the petition regarding the need to limit speeds on the A7 at the North Middleton junction. we had 271 signatures!
For those of you that don’t know, Midlothian council’s own figures show that over 700 vehicles every day exceed 70MPH on this 60 limit stretch of road. 15% of all vehicles (including those that are limit to 40 or 50) exceed 68MPH. Most of the people siging the petition had been invbovled in a “near miss” of some kind on the stretch from Birkenside to south of this junction.
The council have arranged a meeting with Ed when he gets back from his holiday – look out for more updates soon.
