Queen Street resurfacing, late October 2018

(NTBCC has just received the information below. While it is not in LCCC’s area, we recognise that LCCC residents may well use Queen St.)

Edinburgh Council advises that the carriageway on Queen Street (between Albyn Place and Hanover Street) will be resurfaced later this month as part of an investment in Edinburgh’s roads and footways for 2018/2019. This carriageway has been prioritised because of its current condition. The work is scheduled to start on the 22nd Octoberand should take approximately 4 weeks to complete.

The resurfacing work (which will not start until the week of 29 October 2018) will be carried out Monday to Friday between the hours of 19:00 – 03:00due to the traffic sensitivity of Queen Street. However the noisiest operations will cease by 23:00 each night and an officer from the Council will be on site until this time to monitor noise levels and address any questions from the public.

In addition, works to upgrade the pedestrian crossing at Albyn Place and some preparatory works for the resurfacing will take place during the day (09:30 – 15:30) starting the week of 22 October 2018.

Changes to bin collection days

(adapted from an email from Edinburgh Council)

In late September Edinburgh Council wrote to all residents who use its kerbside bin service to update them on changes to their bin collection days and garden waste collections. In the letters, Edinburgh Council also included new bin collection calendars and, for residents who had signed up to Edinburgh Council’s new garden waste service, new garden waste bin permits were included.

The new collection dates and garden waste service started this week, so Edinburgh Council would be grateful if you can check your new bin calendars to ensure you are putting your bins out on the correct day. Garden waste bins may also be collected on a different day of the week to other bins. Residents can check their new bin calendars on Edinburgh Council’s website.

The changes to bin collection days is part of this year’s budget savings and will help the Council to save £500,000.

Thank you for your support.
