Seems to be a lot of this about in Midlothian at the moment. We have the road closure at Lugton Brae in Dalkeith

http://www.midlothian.gov.uk/news/article/563/update_on_road_at_lugton

and this week's Advertiser reports on a landslide at Esk Bridge in Penicuik plus I see that the back of the Tesco petrol station is taped off with warning notices so I assume something to do with the Loanburn. Anybody know anything more about this?

Don't know anything about the Loanburn but my concern is how long it will take to repair and reopen the road at Lugton. If the subsidence stabilisation work at Roslin Glen was anything to go by, it could be quite a while.

Lugton Brae is a main road that carries a lot of traffic and is used by many a bus so I can see them getting that fixed a lot quicker than the Roslin Glen Road

Well, it looks like the road will be closed for a while - major route or not.

I had a neb on Sunday when I was in that neck of the woods and little progress has been made. There are a couple of areas where holes have been dug but there is a subsidence crack running about 20yards down the white line in the middle of the road. It's as if someone has tried to bend the road along the dotted line!
