Our work has been progressing well and we are currently a
little ahead of schedule.
Work in Blackfriars Street (phase 5) is ongoing. From Monday 3 July to Monday 10 July our work here will concentrate on connecting and testing our new gas main within Blackfriars Street. All continuing well, Phase 5 of the project will be completed by Sunday 30 July.
While we continue to work in the Cowgate (phase 6),
westbound traffic remains diverted, with traffic heading east reduced to one
lane. For everyone’s safety, there will be temporary traffic lights in place at the Pleasance junction from Thursday 22 June
until Sunday 2 July. It will not be possible for traffic to turn left from the
Cowgate onto School Wynd from Friday 23 June until Sunday 2 July. Our work in the Cowgate is due to finish on Sunday 2 July.
Phase 7 of the project starts on Monday 10 July. We'll be working in Holyrood Road between the junctions of Viewcraig Gardens and
St John Street. Holyrood Road will be closed to traffic during this time with local diversions in place. All being well, our work is due to finish here on Sunday 30
Phase 8 starts on Monday 17 July and is expected to be
completed by Sunday 30 July. This will see us working once again in the High
Street. The road will remain open with traffic managed using priority boards. On
the north side of the High Street there will be parking restrictions in place.
We will return to the High Street in September to reinstate the cobbles/setts,
after the Edinburgh Festival and Fringe have ended.
