Leith Programme Phase 5 (Brunswick Street to Montgomery Street) Traffic Regulation Order (TRO)
Drop-in Surgery invitation
We are writing to invite you along to attend an informal drop-in surgery at the McDonald Road library on Thursday 10 November between 3:00-7:00pm where Council officers will be on hand to discuss the proposals contained in the draft Traffic Regulation Order for the next phase of the Leith Programme works. This will be a great opportunity for anyone who would like more information to speak informally with the officers present.
Since launching the formal consultation we have had a very good level of engagement and, as a result, took the decision to extend the consultation in order to hear more people’s views on the draft plans that seek to continue to implement the road, footway, and cycle improvements already delivered from Constitution Street to Iona Street and currently ongoing from Pilrig Street to McDonald Road.
Drop-in Event Details:
What: Leith Programme Phase 5 TRO (Brunswick Street to Montgomery Street) Drop-in Surgery
Where: Nelson Hall, McDonald Road Library, 2-4 McDonald Road, Edinburgh EH7 4LU
When: Thursday 10 November between 3:00 and 7:00pm
Leith Programme Phase 4 – Pilrig Street Junction Upgrade – Latest news
As reported in the last update, regular liaison has been taking place with SGN regarding the delay to their mains replacement works around Brunswick Street as this has impacted on our contractor’s ability to start the junction upgrade at Pilrig Street. Due to these delays, which have arisen from unavoidable technical difficulties, SGN are currently predicting a completion date of 31 October although this still remains uncertain. As a result of this uncertainty and the upcoming Christmas works embargo, a decision has been taken by the Leith Programme project team to re-programme the Pilrig Street junction improvements to commence after the New Year in January 2017. In the meantime, our contractors will be commencing with new worksites at Middlefield and Crighton Place and focusing their efforts on footway upgrades and cycle lane installation. Full details of the revised junction start date will follow in a future update and will be publicised widely using the usual channels.
