Leith Programme Stakeholder Update 111 – Phase 4 (Iona Street to Brunswick Street)

(adapted from an email sent by Michael Motion, Senior Project Manager, Infrastructure, Turner & Townsend at 17:08 on 2017_09_22)

Completion of the road surfacing works will be noticeable as we complete areas and move the major worksites southwards towards McDonald Road and Brunswick Street. With that being the case, we will now be closing both McDonald Road and Brunswick Street junctions on Wednesday morning, 27th September with local diversions put in place. This will coincide with the opening up of both Iona Street and Albert Street. McDonald Road and Brunswick Street will remain closed until completion of all works by the end of October, as will Brunswick Road where the site compound is located.

Proposed works and worksite locations for the week commencing 25th September:

  • Completion of the raised tables at both the Iona Street and Albert Street junctions, allowing these to be re-opened as noted above.
  • Final 20% of the footpath slabbing to the corner of the Brunswick Street junction will be carried out
  • Continuing the Scottish Water works at Croall Place, followed by the footpath reinstatement works.  We are aiming to have these critical works, being the replacement of lead water pipes, completed this week.
  • Road re-surfacing to Leith Walk as noted above

You will also see some smaller remote worksites opening up, as we make good some previously noted defective works prior to full completion of the project.

Should you have any queries, or require any further information in regards to the above, please do not hesitate to make contact by using leith.programme@edinburgh.gov.uk.
