    Project update: Thursday 4 May 

    Phase 3 of our project is progressing as scheduled. We’re excavating large construction holes in Holyrood Road and have established a route for laying our new pipe away from other existing pipes and cables.

    Archaeologists are on site as we work at Holyrood Road to record any items of historical interest which are uncovered. 

    This phase is due to be completed by Friday 19 May, when we’ll move onto phase 4 of the project at the Pleasance junction between Holyrood Road and Cowgate. 

    We have also started the reinstatement of the road surface in Blackfriars Street. All continuing well, this will also be completed by Friday 19 May before we start the second half our work in Blackfriars Street (phase 5).
