• Edinburgh Old Town


    Project update: Thursday 2 November 2017


    Work has continued to progress - we’ve now completed laying our new pipe, and the old pipework has been decommissioned. 

    We’re still working in the Holyrood Road, Cowgate, Blackfriars Street and High Street area, carrying out reinstatement of the road surfaces and tidying the sites we’ve been working in. This work will take approximately two to three weeks. We’re liaising closely with City of Edinburgh Council, to minimise disruption as much as possible, and we'll be working around planned events in the city centre. 

    Temporary traffic lights remain in place in Holyrood Road and the Cowgate. The High Street remains under a priority system for traffic.  

    Access to and exit from Blackfriars Street is from the High Street only. High School Wynd at the junction with the Cowgate is also closed.

    It will be necessary for us to close the High Street section we’re working in for approximately two weeks to allow for the reinstatement of the setts/cobbles. Notification of this closure will be made nearer to the time.  

    We’re sorry for any inconvenience caused and would like to thank you once again for your patience and support while we complete our work.
