Stakeholder Update 99. Weekly lookahead: Proposed works w/c 19th June 2017

(adapted from an email from Michael Motion, Senior Project Manager, Infrastructure, Turner & Townsend, send on 2017_06_16 at 15:27)

Dear Stakeholder

I refer to the general update communication issued yesterday, and note below details of specific works that will be undertaken and associated works locations during the course of next week:

  • Reinstate cycleway surfacing, footpath slabbing and kerbs at Albert Place, outside Sainsburys
  • Continuing the cyclepath at Croall Place (East side of Leith Walk) to then be used for pedestrian footway, allowing slabbing to continue at this location
  • Complete the cyclepath surfacing at Croall Place (West side of Leith Walk) up to McDonald Road to be used as a pedestrian walkway
  • Complete slabbing outside the library corner of McDonald Road/Leith Walk
  • Brunswick Street to close on Monday 19th June to allow kerb realignment and slabbing to commence
  • Road crossings excavations on the southbound carriageway from Wednesday 20th June

There will be a significant increase in activity on Monday morning in terms of both labour and plant on site, which will unfortunately mean an increase in noise levels from the resultant works.  This is unavoidable in order to complete the necessary excavations at the McDonald Road junction and Brunswick Street.

Should you have any queries or concerns with regards to the above, please do not hesitate to contact me direct either at this Email or at
