Please note that construction work on the Trams to Newhaven project will pause for Christmas and New Year from 5.00pm on 20 December 2019 until 7.00am on Monday 6 January 2020.
All open excavations on Constitution Street have been backfilled with sand to protect the ground conditions. Footways have been reinstated where possible and the majority of traffic management on Leith Walk will be removed, with barriers remaining around street lighting columns and build-outs.
During the festive period, we will secure all construction site entry and exit gates using a coded padlock. All emergency services have been given the code should they need to gain access and the site will be inspected twice a day.
The scaffolding at the South Leith Parish Church wall will remain in place over the festive period and will be inspected regularly.
Our contact centre opening hours over the period are:
- Saturday 21st December 2019 – Monday 23rd December 2019 8:00am to 8:00pm
- Tuesday 24th December 2019 & Tuesday 31st December 2019 8:00am to 6:00pm
