A702 Biggar Bypass

The A702 is a key route from Edinburgh to the south. Which is the best way to bypass Biggar, Coulter and Lamington?

Of course it wouldn't be too hard to dual the 702 on its current course NW of Penicuik, but there's something to be said for rerouting it onto the 701 as it arrives at the Edinburgh bypass.

3 Generations of A74, Crawford

Just north of Crawford, original alignment straight ahead, 1960s (where the silver Porsche is) to the left, and 1990s A74(M) further left

Old 'Clearway end' signs, original A74, Crawford

This old stub of the original A74 comes off the 1960s alignment just north of Crawford, to serve a farm & BT building. Clearway end signs date back to when the 1960s alignment was the main route.

Original A74, north of Crawford

Just to the north of Crawford, this old alignment remains in use as access to a farm and a BT building. 1960s alignment to the right and 1990s A74(M) to the right of that. Quite a lot of the 1920s/30s A74 seems to have been surfaced in this red tar surface. Perhaps a local stone but does anyone know if there was a more practical reason for this?

To the south of Crawford village, this old alignment is visible going across a field, and then over the West Coast Main Line. 1960s alignment to the right

Looking south from a little further back, the original alignment exits Crawford behind my car (blue one), whilst the other car is about to meet the junction with the 1960s alignment

This was the old junction at Abington, looking north. Glasgow A74 to the left, Edinburgh to the right. Now the road up to the left is just a stub, and the road to the right goes up to the roundabout at Abington service area.

A702, normally a busy link between Edinburgh and England, is now quiet as it is again closed at West Linton for reconstruction of the carriageway.

The roundabout in the middle distance is where the roads to Lanark and Biggar diverge. In the not too distant past there was no roundabout, just a fork in the road.

The prominent hill in the distance is Tinto with its very large cairn at the summit just discernable.
