    Project update: Friday 21 April 2017


    The first two phases of our project are continuing to progress well.

    Due to unforeseen engineering difficulties, we still have some work to complete in the High Street before it can be re-opened.

    We’ll open the High Street from 12 noon on Saturday 22 April to allow the Pedal to Parliament Event and The Great Edinburgh Run to take place without disruption. The road will then be closed again on Monday 24 April to allow us to continue working.

    Once our work in the High Street is complete, it will be re-opened and phase three of our project will begin. Holyrood Road will be closed for the duration of this phase, between Pleasance and Viewcraig Gardens.
