    Project update: Friday 10 November 2017


    Our work has continued to progress well. We’ve been working on the final stages of reinstating the road surfaces and tidying the sites we’ve been working in. 

    We’ll be completely finished our work in the Cowgate / Blackfriars Street tomorrow, with the site cleared and temporary traffic lights removed. It will then be possible to access Blackfriars Street from the Cowgate again.

    We’ll also be finishing our work in the Holyrood Road / St John’s Road area tomorrow.  

    Our reinstatement work in the High Street will still be ongoing. All continuing well, our work here is due to finish in early December. 

    The High Street remains under a priority system for traffic. It may 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. If this is required, notification of this closure will be made nearer to the time.  

    We’re continuing to liaise 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. 

    We’re sorry for any inconvenience caused by our work. We understand that roadworks can be frustrating. Thank you for your continued patience and support.
