    Project update: Tuesday 25 July 

    Our work in the Holyrood Road area is continuing (Phase 7). Holyrood Road is fully closed between Viewcraig Gardens and St John Street with diversions in place.  

    Access to the NCP car park in Viewcraig Gardens is being 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 at the junction with the Cowgate has been reopened. 

    We'll be returning to work in the Cowgate, at the junction with Blackfriars Street, at beginning of September for approximately two weeks. Blackfriars Street will be closed at the junction with the Cowgate for that period of time. 

    Temporary traffic lights will also be required to be in place at that time.

    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 would like to thank everyone for their continued patience while we complete our essential work.
