|Junctions related to the A6095|
Newcraighall Junction is a junction on the A1 Musselburgh bypass. Since the bypass, and the junction, opened in 1986, development has sprung up around it, with one of Edinburgh's first multiplex cinemas and the ever-growing Fort Kinnaird Shopping Park; before then, there was a colliery on the site and the A6095 took a straighter route through. Part of the Borders rail line was reopened and electrified to Newcraighall station: a Park & Ride is next to this junction, although with trains running every half hour or less often, its usefulness is questionable.
The junction is a diamond interchange with traffic lights and sliproads to bypass the lights for some left turns. Because of the nearby retail park, it can be very busy. Beyond the immediate area, the A6095 carries traffic to Newhailes House and gardens to the east, and to the west through the residential areas of Niddrie and Craigmillar to Cameron Toll.
