We appreciate this path is important for people walking and cycling in and through the area therefore, where possible, our intended approach to managing access during the works is:

  1. Local diversions around work activities (may require dismounting and walking on verges)
  2. Path closures – Please see attached diversion map
  3. Information boards will be displayed at closure points with maps of the diversion routes for onward journeys.  Please note that this diversion route will require cycling on trafficked roads.

These works are essential as part of the on-going maintenance programme and we apologise in advance for any inconvenience that these works may cause. Please contact John McCormack with any queries.  Alternatively, if you wish to discuss these works with a Council Officer please contact Bryan Mackie, Professional Officer, or 0131 469 5678.
