As part of our ongoing partnership with the Scottish Government and other Local Authorities we now post all information regarding road works, closures and diversions in West Lothian on the Scottish Road Works Register which can be found online using the link above.

We are committed to maintaining West Lothian's roads to the highest possible standard. It is our aim to limit the inconvenience to road users during maintenance works however, from time to time, we need to close roads or divert the traffic.
Diversion routes are set up when roads or footpaths are closed to re-direct traffic. It is a legal requirement that in order to close a public road you must have Roads Authority permission, which generates a Temporary Traffic Regulation Order.
We prefer to keep the roads open and would only close the road as the last remaining option. We will consult with the emergency services and other public bodies before deciding to close the road.

Where a road is closed or traffic needs to be diverted we will give as much notice as possible through local media, this website and by displaying noticeboards on the affected roads in the lead up to the work.

Should you have any queries about any road works, road closures or diversions on roads then please contact us for further information on 01506 280000 or email
