Motorway bus lanes for west Edinburgh – transportxtra
9 April 2021
The citybound hard shoulder on part of the M8 and M9 in west Edinburgh are to be converted into bus lanes.
The lanes will run for four miles from a point south of junction 1 of the M9 to the Hermiston Gait roundabout (junction 1 of the M8).
Transport Scotland says the lanes should reduce bus journey times and improve reliability, particularly at junction 2 of the M8 and on the approach to Hermiston Gate where peak period congestion is a problem.
