A major roadworks programme begins tonight on an approach road to Edinburgh Airport.
Essential night-time maintenance to improve the surface on the M9 at Junction 1, southbound, will take place over the next four nights on a crucial route for those travelling to catch flights out of Edinburgh Airport.
Neil Greig, of the Institute of Advanced Motorists, told travellers they must adjust their arrangements to ensure they reach the airport in time.
He said: “Doing the roadworks overnight certainly minimises the disruption to motorists.
“But this is a crucial route to the airport and is used 24/7 because flights are departing and arriving late at night and during the early hours.
“And motorists have also got to remember that some of the worst tailbacks in Scotland have been caused by contractors over-running the time they should be working.
“This could cause major obstacles for air travellers if it happens on their day of departure.”
The slip road will be closed from 8pm until 6am on each of the four nights.
Road users are being warned to allow for an additional journey time of around 11 minutes in completing the diversion.
The 1.1km long stretch of road at Newbridge Junction, as well as lane 1 of the M9 adjacent to the works, will be closed during the works and a clearly signed diversion will be in place.
Traffic will be diverted to the M8 Junction 2 to travel eastbound towards Edinburgh, continuing to Hermiston Gait and then be directed back along the westbound M8 to the Junction 2 offslip, returning to Newbridge Roundabout by exiting the diversion at Junction 1 using the northbound off-slip.
Edinburgh Airport has been evacuated due to a security alert.
Police Scotland said the terminal and access road had been closed following the discovery of “a potentially suspicious bag” in the central search area of the airport.
Passengers and staff were asked to leave the terminal building while an investigation takes place.
Bomb disposal experts are at the scene and a cordon has been put in place.
Edinburgh Airport said an investigation was under way. The airport has been closed to all flights.
A BBC reporter has been told that a male passenger was stopped by security staff and his baggage is being examined.
A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Police at Edinburgh Airport have implemented a closure of the building and the access roads following the discovery of a potentially suspicious bag within the central search area at around 1.50pm today.
Giving control over Air Passenger Duty (APD) to the Scottish Parliament could encourage visitors to come to the country for the Ryder Cup and Commonwealth Games, transport and tourism bosses say.
The Commonwealth Games and the Ryder Cup will be held in Scotland next year but some industry leaders believe tourists could be put off from flying to the country because of high APD charges.
Late last year, Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh airports commissioned a report that claimed the charge could lead to a drop in both passengers and tourism spending. The tax could cost the Scottish economy £210 milliona year by 2016 and reduce the number of visitors by 2.1 million a year.
Transport Minister Keith Brown said: “Scotland will welcome the world in 2014 courtesy of the Commonwealth Games and Ryder Cup, and yet we are in the absurd situation of increasing costs for people who intend to visit Scotland.
“The ‘World Economic Forum, Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Report 2013’ shows that the UK has amongst the highest aviation taxes and charges in the world, ranked 139th out of 140.
“I would urge the UK Government to deliver devolution of APD as soon as possible so that we can develop a regime that makes Scotland more competitive.”
Gordon Dewar, chief executive of Edinburgh Airport, said airlines are questioning the viability of basing planes in Scotland because of APD.
He said: “This tax has now hit its tipping point where the damage that it is doing to Scotland far outweighs the benefits. It cannot stand and must be reviewed as a matter of urgency.
“Airlines are telling us that they are seeing it have an impact on passenger flows which is ultimately having an impact on their decision making on where to put planes. This means that our country has to work harder to get the connections it requires.
“The evidence lays bare the argument that this tax is assisting with the deficit. Rather, APD is hindering our ability to tackle the economic challenges Scotland faces.”
One year ago Tian Tian and Yang Guang arrived at Edinburgh Zoo amid worldwide interest after a 5,000- mile flight from China into Edinburgh Airport.
Since then, more than half a million visitors have been to see the animals, who are set to stay in Scotland for another nine years.The arrival of the pandas has been a massive commercial success for the Zoo.
Iain Valentine, Director of Research and Conservation at the zoo, said much has been learnt about the species over the last 12 months.
“Looking back on this, our first giant panda year, it has been a great success,” he said.
The only disappointing thing about the pandas has been their failure to mate. Pandas have a limited breeding season and did not manage to mate this year, although Mr Valentine says he has high hopes for 2013.
Prime Minister David Cameron has completed his cabinet reshuffle and he has replaced Justine Greening as Transport Minister .
Greening is MP for Roehampton & Southfields, directly under the airport’s flight path , and her mission was to stop the development of a third runway at Heathrow Airport .In the end she was only able to prevent the government giving the green light in this parliament.
The question is now not when but how the Conservatives do a massive a u-turn on the third runway. It looks as if they want another enquiry to delay the decision until after the next election.
Patrick McLoughlin, who will take over as transport secretary, has declared he has an “open mind” on the expansion of Britain’s only hub airport, joining chancellor George Osborne in a cabinet which increasingly favours a third runway, with the business case trumping environmental concerns.
While the party will suffer in seats close to the airport, they have calculated the economic recovery must take precedence.
The business community has been baying for additional capacity to connect to growing markets in Asia and South America for years, and it now seems certain the Conservatives will include support for a third runway in their manifesto for the 2015 election.
Operating Heathrow as a ‘mixed-mode’ airport would increase capacity by as much as a quarter, but would again breach noise restrictions as planes approach from different directions.
Short-haul flights could also be barred from precious Heathrow landing slots, allowing only long-haul traffic to use limited resources. This might work in the short-term but is no solution.
Gatwick could be expanded, or even Stansted, with second runways at either. But, in reality, the UK can maintain only one hub airport.
‘Heathwick’ – a high-speed rail link between Gatwick and Heathrow – was swiftly rejected last year after being put forward by civil servants.
This would leave only Boris’s fantasy island in the Thames.
Not only is the planned location in one of the most congested flight paths in Europe, on the approach to Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam, that path covers five separate Special Protection Areas packed with wildlife.
Environmentalists could delay the project for years, while birds would also be hazardous to planes.
Funding for the £40 billion project is also far from assured, with some even suggesting a levy on planes landing at Heathrow could be imposed: a hard sell to British Airways, which would effectively be asked to pay for the demolition of its established base.
As for the transport connections? After the years it took to have Crossrail approved, it is hard to imagine Boris Island and its required infrastructure being approved by 2050, if ever.
Outspoken as always, leading Brexit campaigner Boris Johnson rose to the challenge earlier, with a statement from the mayor exclaiming: “The third runway would mean more traffic, more noise, more pollution – and a serious reduction in the quality of life for hundreds of thousands of people.
“We will fight this all the way. Even if a third runway was built, it would not do the job of meeting Britain’s needs.
“If we are to remain Europe’s premier business hub we need a new four-runway airport, preferably to the east of London, that addresses the problem of aviation capacity before it is too late, and business is driven into the arms of our European competitors.”
From the point of view of airports in Scotland like Edinburgh and Glasgow, any development which brings more passengers into Britain would be a good thing as a proportion of those flyers will terminate their journey in Scotland.
