Leith Programme Stakeholder Update 97: Phase 4 (Pilrig Street to McDonald Road)

(adapted from an email from Michael Motion, Senior Project Manager, Infrastructure, Turner & Townsend at 12:19 on 2017_06_02. 

Having received the latest update, LCCC has sought confirmation that Crummock will be using the compound in Iona Street and the stock stored there. This would make it easier to continue works already underway and save time ordering stock.

We also asked whether the sub-contractor who looks after Phase 4 traffic signage will work under Crummock’s direction and deal with current signage (and fencing/barrier) issues today. 

We will relay any answers as we receive them.)

Dear Stakeholder

We refer to our communication yesterday regarding the Leith Programme contractor being put into administration.

We have now completed an options appraisal and identified an interim way forward that will ensure work re-commences on Monday 5th June. The works will be carried out by a Council framework contractor, Crummock (Scotland) Limited, and will concentrate, in the first instance, in the work sites that are currently partially complete.

As you will appreciate, we are dealing with a complex situation but feel we have reacted as quickly as possible to maintain momentum on the project. We will of course keep you updated as more detailed plans emerge.

Thank you for patience in this matter.
