    Project update: Monday 4 September

    Holyrood Road has been fully reopened. We are still working in the vicinity but traffic is able to pass our works.

    It will be necessary for us to carry out some further work in Holyrood Road in a couple of weeks’ time. We’ll provide more information here about that work, and the traffic measures which will be in place, nearer the time.   
    We’ve returned to work at the junction of the Cowgate with Blackfriars Street today, Monday 4 September, for approximately two weeks. During this time access to and exit from Blackfriars Street will be from the High Street only. High School Wynd at its junction with the Cowgate is also closed. Temporary traffic lights are in place in the Cowgate.
    The final phase of our project, Phase 8, will take place in the High Street from Monday 25 September, for approximately six weeks. This will include reinstating the cobbles/setts.
    We’d like to thank everyone for your continued support and patience while we complete our work.
