|Junctions related to the A199|
Milton Link Junction is a crossroads on the edge of Edinburgh. It is a cannon, with the A199 bouncing off the A1. The A1 used to run east-west here, and the north-south route was a primary route and some signs still reflect that.
The A1 Musselburgh bypass opened on 27 March 1986. The A199 Portobello bypass was built along the line of a disused rail line to Leith and opened in the 80s, around the same time.
Prior to the creation of this junction, the east-west route here was the A6096 Portobello bypass, while the A1 ran along the coast through Portobello. The roads to the north and south are more recent.
