    Project update: Monday 22 May 

    Our work at the Pleasance/Cowgate junction has progressed very well and we're due to fully reopen all the roads around the junction before rush hour this evening, ahead of schedule. We would like to thank road users and residents for their patience while we have been working here. 

    We'll be moving onto Phase 5 of our project, which sees us returning to Blackfriars Street, on Wednesday 24 May.  We’ll be extending the new gas main between the junction with New Skinner's Close and the junction with the Cowgate. This part of Blackfriars Street will be closed to traffic. Vehicles will be able to access and exit the upper half of Blackfriars Street from the High Street.
