Taken from the overpass of Edinburgh Park Station, soon after sunrise. Looks like some sort of link is being built across the railway between the business parks on either side. Someone sent me this comment:

"Not absolutely certain, but I think your suspected 'link road' is the new
tramline, which has to get from the ex-guided busway to the east, and south of
the railway, back through the Gyle, north of the railway to the new Tram Depot
on the A8, and then to the airport - another 2-3 years and we might know!"

The following seems to agree. Link

One can spend a lot of time trying to find the access to this hotel - even after eyeballing it from the nearby ringroad. Automobile GPS systems aren't a lot of help in navigating such a modern muddle.
