I can't help wondering why they need to construct a roundabout on the A702 because of this http://www.midlothianadvertiser.co.uk/news/2010-opening-fornew-water-works.3229126.jp If it is going to slow down the traffic on that road, I would have thought that there would be likely to be more accidents.

stick. end. wrong.
The roundabout is part of the new housing development at Mauricewood along with traffic lights at the A701 junction and various other road improvements between Penicuik and Straiton.
Which, regrettably, will apparently not include a proper upgrading of the A701 just a little tinkering round the edges.

I did wonder if that might be the case. I suppose I can understand why it is going to become necessary. However, as I said I am more than a little concerned about where it is going to be sited. Have you seen the speed that the cars travel at when they are going down that part of the hill Shocked

Well, I've now heard that while working on the new water treatment works they have found a Roman Garrison. It seems that the work has been stopped and Historic Scotland are now involved. Does anyone know anything more?

Well, here's the latest on the proposed treatment works. It seems that 8 metres of the building will be visible with the rest of the building below ground. However, I'm not sure that the picture gives a true impression of an 8metre high building, unless there is a grass embankment in front of it. http://edinburghnews.scotsman.com/latestnews/Scottish-Water-breaks-cover-with.3843972.jp

Latest update from Scottish water casts some doubt on the roundabout being built on the A702 at Mauricewood Road. The relevant section from the update at:
http://www.scottishwater.co.uk/portal/page/portal/SWE_PGP_INVESTMENT/SWE_PGE_INVESTMENT/SWE_INV_EDWTW/Meet%20the%20team%209%20Summary%20Sept%2008.pdf

is:
"Roundabout on the A702
Our previous understanding was that construction work on the new roundabout on the A702 was to
commence in Spring 2009. We have not received an update, though feedback from local residents and
current market conditions suggest that these road works may be delayed."

Not looking so good now, just like many things that were planned for Penicuik area.

Can you believe that the recession appears to have been good for something! http://edinburghnews.scotsman.com/latestnews/Glencorse-water--treatment-plant.5600767.jp

I went for a cycle early today to Logan Lea reservoir and was shocked to find that despite the very soggy summer, the water level has dropped by about 4 feet Shocked Glencorse reservoir has fallen slightly but is still quite full. I wonder if this has anything to do with the new water treatment works. If it is, what would happen if we had a dry summer instead? Apologies for the quality of the photo as I forgot to take my camera and had to use a phone instead.

Note: I have now replaced the picture with a better quality one.

Somebody working on the water treatment site told me that there's now a massive underground reservoir there. (I tried to get him to tell me its approximate dimensions, but all I could get was "----ing huge!") Maybe they've temporarily depleted Loganlea and Glencorse to fill the underground one.

Not sure if that's the case. The clear water tank at the WTW is capable of holding up to 90 million litres but that water has already been treated and filtrated. Surely the water at the reservoir still has to go through the system?

I have had a reply from Scottish Water. I seems that Logan Lea reservoir level has been lowered to allow critical maintenance to be carried out on the Reservoir.
