Leith Programme Stakeholder Update 65

Works Update

Crummock (Scotland) Ltd have now completed the bulk of their contracted works in the Pilrig Street to Crown Place section of Leith Walk. As reported in the last stakeholder update (No.64, 12 December 2014), recent weather conditions had hindered progress and this, unfortunately, continued into the last week and impacted on their ability to get everything completed as planned. Like most contractors, Crummock cease their operations over the Christmas period but will be back on site starting Tuesday 6 January in order to both finish any outstanding works and carry out remedial work as required. In keeping with our current approach, we will be seeking for them to get this carried out as quickly as possible.

We would like to thank you for your patience during these works and hope that the new road surface, pavements and pedestrian crossings once fully completed improve the area for everyone who lives, works or visits. We appreciate that some of you have been in touch to let us know about specific concerns; your input has helped us to manage the programme and strive to minimise disruption for all as far as possible.

We hope you all have a safe and happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year. I will provide further updates in the New Year.
