We’re investing £270,000 to upgrade our gas network in Portobello Promenade in Edinburgh. The essential work involves the replacement of 1.6km of old, metal gas mains with new plastic pipe to ensure a continued safe and reliable gas supply.
Following discussions with The City of Edinburgh Council, work will be starting on Monday 9 January and will take approximately 15 weeks to complete. The project will start where Joppa Road meets the Promenade, and will then continue westwards in phases in order to reduce disruption.
We hope to keep the Promenade open for the duration of our work and all businesses in the local area will remain open as usual. Some parking restrictions will be in place throughout our project in Morton Street, Bedford Terrace, Brunstane Road and Bellfield Street, however if a road closure is necessary you will be notified in advance.
We are sorry about any inconvenience our work causes and would like to thank local businesses and residents for their patience while we carry out this essential work.
Further information about the work is available in our customer leaflet.
