    Project update: Tuesday 30 May 

    Phase 6 of our project started yesterday, as scheduled. This phase will take approximately four weeks. We are working in the Cowgate between Blackfriars Street and the Pleasance. 


    Diversions are in place and traffic heading east is reduced to one lane.

    Westbound traffic is diverted as follows:
    For traffic heading north - via St Mary’s Street/High Street/South Bridge/Chambers Street/Bristo Place/Forrest Road/Candlemaker Row

    For traffic heading south - Pleasance/West Richmond Street/South Bridge/Chambers Street/Bristo Place/Forrest Road/Candlemaker Row

     

    We’re also continuing to work in St John Street. We’ll be carrying out a complex engineering operation here, starting on Monday 12 June. 

    To allow us to deliver our heavy plant and equipment it will be necessary for St John Street to be closed on 6 and 7 June, while a large crane is in operation. 

    St John Street will also be closed on 12, 13 and 14 June while we carry out the operation, installing a large valve.
