The A1 (former A6096) Willowbrae Road

The A6096 was the highest number allocated to a Class I road in the original 1922 road numbering, and as such was at the extreme northern edge of zone 6, on the eastern side of Edinburgh. This also made it the northernmost four-digit A-road in the country.

It provided a route from Edinburgh to Musselburgh avoiding Portobello and as such was a loop off the A1. It started on London Road and headed south along Willowbrae Road, which turned into Milton Road West. In Duddingston the road turned more easterly to pass Portobello Park and then continued along Milton Road East to return to the A1 Eastfield to the west of Musselburgh.

In 1935 it was deemed suitable to reroute the A1 along the A6096 and so that road was made redundant. The eastern section of the road is now numbered A199 as the A1 has been moved onto the Musselburgh bypass.
