Carriageway resurfacing: Broughton Road

(The following is a text of a letter copied to LCCC’s webmaster on 7 October 2019.)

Dear Sir / Madam,

CARRIAGEWAY RESURFACING

As part of an investment in Edinburgh’s roads and footways for 2019/2020, I write to advise that the carriageway on Broughton Road (between Pilrig Street and Broughton Primary School) will be resurfaced in the coming days. Broughton Road has been prioritised because of its current condition and because the upcoming tram works will prevent any planned resurfacing work from taking place in and around the proposed tram line during the construction period.

The works are currently planned to commence on Thursday 10th October 2019 and will last approximately 6 nights with the work being carried out Monday to Friday from 6pm until around 3am. However, to reduce the impact for residents, the noisiest operations, such as breaking out the road surface, will cease no later than 11pm each night.

To facilitate the works, sections of Broughton Road will be closed to through traffic during the working hours, but the road will be fully open again each morning. Residents access to private parking areas will be maintained as best as possible during working hours but there may be some delays when we are working directly in front of the access. If you know you need vehicular access at all times, you may wish to consider alternative parking arrangements nearby. Emergency service and pedestrian access will be maintained at all times.

Anticipated phases;

Phase 1 – Pilrig Street to North Pilrig Heights (3 nights)
Phase 2 – North Pilrig Heights to Broughton Primary School (3 nights)

We also need to restrict parking on Broughton Road to allow us to resurface the carriageway. On street notices and yellow no waiting cones will highlight these areas. Please do not park in these areas or your vehicle may be removed without warning and this may extent the duration of the works.

Unfortunately, disruption and noise is unavoidable during resurfacing works however we will make every effort to minimise the impact for local residents and traders. An officer from the City of Edinburgh Council will be on site from 6pm until 11pm each night to address any questions/comments you may have. Alternatively, if you require any further information regarding this project, please do not hesitate to contact me using the details at the foot of this letter.

Please note, the proposed dates can change if there is any extreme weather so you can keep up to date with these works and other planned roadworks and events by following Edintravel on Twitter, Facebook or at http://www.edinburgh.gov.uk/edintravel.

Yours sincerely

Tram Diversion Route Resurfacing Work – Revised Programme

(from an email from Edinburgh Council, time-stamped Wed, 3 Jul 2019 at 15:51)

I write to provide an update to my ongoing carriageway resurfacing programme in and around Leith prior to the commencement of the work to extend the tram to Newhaven.

Works on site at Pilrig Street junction, Dalmeny Street and East London Street are due to complete at the end of next week (Friday 12 July) after which time the main contractor has a company recess for 2 weeks.

On returning to site on the 29 July, the work to redesign the junction at Duke Street and Easter Road will fully commence (some preparatory work will take place next week) while the majority of work ongoing elsewhere will be predominantly carriageway resurfacing work.

To this effect, please find below a basic table detailing the proposed locations, dates and traffic management for the resurfacing work and I have also attached the full programme in the form of a Gantt chart. I will caveat this and remind everyone that dates are approximate as any delays can have a knock on effect, however the order of work should remain the same and I will update EdinTravel as works progress.

I will also explain that the programme has extended due to additional work being requested and some issues on site with traffic signal installations however the main resurfacing work should throw up little in the way of unforeseen delays and there will be no further additional work included in the programme unless it is deemed important and we create space in the existing programme. We also remain in full contact with the team leading the Tram extension with regards their preparatory work and start date.

As before, residents and traders will receive notices prior to the start of work in their area with more specific details, and I will forward a copy of these notices on as appropriate. If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Proposed Carriageway Resurfacing Works – Summer 2019/20

(adapted from an email from Edinburgh Council)

The carriageway on a number of streets in your Ward are due to be resurfaced during the Summer of 2019. The roads affected have been prioritised because of their current condition and because the upcoming tram works will prevent any planned resurfacing work from taking place in and around the proposed tram line during the construction period.

The resurfacing works are planned to start on 27 May and will be carried out during weekdays in separate phases in order to minimise disruption to the public. On some traffic sensitive routes, work may be carried out under nightshift to minimise the impact on traffic. Most roads affected will be fully or significantly resurfaced with a select few being only partially resurfaced or patched as required. There will also be some improvements to pedestrian facilities, traffic signal upgrades and renewal of some street furniture.
