A71 Closure

B8020 Niddry Road Closure 

On 15 May 2017, a section of the B8020 Niddry road will be closed due to roadworks. Works are expected to last approximately 5 weeks.

Service 7 will not serve Winchburgh for the duration of the road closure. The route is truncated at Broxburn.

Service 22B (a late evening journey) will continue to serve Winchburgh Monday to Thursday, diverting via Ecclesmachan Road.  On Fridays, passengers must alight at Kirkliston then get the 38 to Winchburgh.
