    Project update: Thursday 23 November 2017



    We're in the final stage of the project, working to reinstate the road surface (setts/cobblestones) in the High Street and the pavement at the junction of Blackfriars Street with the High Street.  

    Due to the recent poor weather conditions our reinstatement work will now take a little longer than previously anticipated.  

    In order to complete this work, it will be necessary to close Blackfriars Street at the junction with the High Street, from tomorrow evening, Friday 24 November, for up to two weeks. Access to Blackfriars Street will be available from the Cowgate. 

    We’re continuing to liaise closely with City of Edinburgh Council, to minimise disruption as much as possible.

    We’re sorry for any inconvenience caused. We'd like to thank local residents, businesses, and road users for your continued patience and support while we complete our work.
