Update on Lorne Street works

From Trams to Newhaven (received mid-day on 12 August):

The installation of the attenuation pipes have been completed up to the junction of Leith Walk however we will be unable to reinstate and re-open the road until the evening of Wednesday 25 August 2021.  

This is due to a mechanical fault with the machine that completes the reinstatement works. We had hoped to have the road re-opened for the start of the new term on 18 August 2021. We have made contact with the school to advise them of this and we will highlight this in the fortnightly newsletter that goes out tomorrow.

In summary, the road will remain closed until the evening of Wednesday 25 August 2021 and there will be no works on site from w/c 16 August 2021 with reinstatement works commencing on Monday 23 August for approximately three days.  Reinstatement works will be between the hours of 09:00 to 15:00 each day to minimise site vehicle movement during school peak hours.
