    Project update: Thursday 20 July 

    Our work in the Holyrood Road area is continuing (Phase 7).

    The temporary traffic lights which were in place at the Pleasance junction were removed this morning. 

    Holyrood Road is now fully closed between Viewcraig Gardens and St John Street, for up to six weeks. Diversions are in place.  

    Access to the NCP car park in Viewcraig Gardens will be maintained from the Pleasance junction. All traffic exiting this car park can turn left only.

    Holyrood Road can be accessed from Holyrood Park as far as St John Street only. 

    Blackfriars Street remains closed at the junction with the Cowgate, as we will soon be connecting the pipes we have recently laid in these streets at this junction. 

    Phase 8 of our project will take place in the High Street from mid-September. When our work is completed there, we’ll be reinstating the cobbles/setts.

    We’d like to thank everyone for your continued patience during our work.
