Start date: 6 January 2020
Approximate duration: 30 weeks
We’re investing £2.2 million to upgrade our gas network in the Stockbridge area of Edinburgh and the first section of our project will begin on Monday 6 January.
This essential work involves the replacement of our old, metal gas mains with new plastic pipe to help ensure a continued safe and reliable gas supply.
In agreement with the City of Edinburgh Council and other local authorities, our work in the Raeburn Place area will begin on 6 January and take approximately 30 weeks to complete. Road closures and temporary traffic lights will be in place at different times throughout our project, but we’ve split the work into two phases to minimise disruption.
Update: Tuesday 14 January
Phase one of our project in Deanhaugh Street is progressing well and our engineers have nearly completed work in the bridge, meaning we can progress further along the road.
From Sunday 19 January, we'll be working between Leslie Place and Dean Street and our signed diversion route for motorists will remain in place.
We'd like to thank Stockbridge residents and businesses for the support we've received so far whilst carrying out complex engineering work to upgrade our gas network.
Phase one – approximately eight weeks
Our project will start in Deanhaugh Street on 6 January. The road will be closed and a signed diversion route will be in place for motorists. We’ll also have temporary traffic lights in place at the junctions with Hamilton Place and Haugh Street for approximately four weeks.
Phase two – approximately 22 weeks
Our engineers will then progress into Raeburn Place and the road will be closed to westbound traffic for the duration of this phase. A signed diversion route will be in place for motorists.
For the duration of our project, there will be restricted parking on Deanhaugh Street and Raeburn Place. Other parking suspensions will be in place at times in surrounding streets. We’ll have a dedicated person onsite throughout our project to help co-ordinate bin collections and deliveries for businesses.
