    Project update: Thursday 13 April 2017


    The first phase of our work is well underway with 72 metres of 630mm diameter gas main successfully laid in Blackfriars Street. 

    We’ve also been working in St John Street, where we are now preparing for the installation of a large valve.

    Our excavation work in the High Street and Blackfriars Street will be completed on Friday 14 April. We’ll then be concentrating on preparing for a connection onto our existing large diameter pipe in the High Street over the next week and, all being well, Phase 1 will be completed by Saturday 23 April.  

    Our work will then move into Holyrood Road as scheduled, with Holyrood Road closed to through traffic between the Pleasance and Viewcraig Gardens.

    Our teams will be working over the Easter weekend to ensure we remain on schedule.

    Project Team Manager Matt Ferguson thanks residents and business owners for their patience.
