A concept testing for the communal bin review project has been implemented in Albert Street to test the project aims:
- Increase and improve recycling services to residents in multi-occupancy and flatted properties providing fully integrated waste and recycling service (each location aiming to have residual waste, recycling, food waste and glass)
- Review the existing bin locations to develop more formalised collection hubs to improve the perception of the service and enhance the streetscape
- Improve overall recycling performance, customer satisfaction and service reliability

With regards to the works and worksite locations for next week, these have been specified and set as the following:
- Paving from Croall Place N/W corner to Shrub Place Lane set to continue and be completed by mid-next week.
- Paving towards corner of Brunswick Street set to be completed on this coming Saturday (22nd July).
- Taring of footway with corduroy paving slabs on Albert Place to begin next week and be completed by Friday 28th July.
- Taring and slabbing of tactile paving set to begin next Tuesday on corner that meets Elm Row with Brunswick Street. To be finished by Friday 28th July.
- Slabbing at bus stop shelter on Crighton Place to begin next week and be finished by Friday 28th July. Small section of slabbing on opposite side of the road also to be complete with regards to the same timeframe.
- Traffic Management plan to be put in place next week allowing for completion of road markings at McDonald Road junction. Road markings to be finished Friday 28th July.
- Road crossing islands (All three at McDonald Road junction and Albert Street junction) to be completed by Monday 24th July.
- Taring and completion of curbing at Iona St as well as junction road markings to be done and completed on Friday 28th July.
Again, we remain on target to have completed our works, allowing the McDonald Road/Brunswick Road to re-open for the Edinburgh Festival embargo, and for all worksite boundary fencing to be removed off site, by the end of July. For the safety of re-opening the junction, we are planning to do this as of Monday 31st July, as opposed to the previous Friday, 28th July.
Further to this, the demobilisation of the Iona Street compound will commence as of Monday 31st July, with the compound off site entirely by Friday 4th August. At this time, the prohibition on entry to Iona Street from Leith Walk will be in place.
Should you have queries, or require any further information, in regards to the above, please do not hesitate to contact me direct or by using firstname.lastname@example.org.

With regards to works carried out this week, the contractor has not quite completed the paving works to the library corner, meaning the resource did not commence paving to the N/W corner at Croall Place. As such, we will be on site on Saturday to make-up some of the time lost this week due to the poor weather and to maintain our current programme of works.
In terms of works and worksite locations for next week, please see below:
- Any final completion/grouting of paving at the library corner
- Commence paving to the N/W corner on Croall Place West
- Continue paving to Brunswick Street
- Continue paving to Leith Walk East side
- Complete crossing excavations and traffic signal duct installation at Brunswick Road
- Return to complete duct crossings at the Albert Place pedestrian crossing (unfortunately the crossing will therefore be out of commission for a period of time next week) and just north of Shrub Place Lane
