The results of the trial will be reported back to the Linlithgow Local Area Committee in the Autumn.

Concerns have been raised by the Newton Community Council regarding ongoing traffic issues. Traffic surveys will also be carried out to collect updated vehicle speed and volume data.

Council officers will also discuss proposals with the main trunk operator to determine if existing motorway variable message signs could be considered to encourage vehicles to remain on the M9 and M90 and not use the A904.

Executive councillor for the environment and Chair of the Linlithgow Local Area Committee Tom Conn said: "The A904 route which runs through Newton will have temporary traffic management measures including temporary signage. The trial scheme will determine if the number of vehicles, particularly heavy goods vehicles, reduce."

Should the results be considered successful and a decision is taken to make them permanent, then funding would be required in future.
