Footpath and public realm works are continuing on both sides of Leith Walk, south of the Pilrig Street junction. Footpath reinstatements at the shop fronts on Crighton Place will continue over the next week, as well as completion of the footpath reinstatement between Middlefield and the new People for Places development in front of Sainsbury’s, Starbucks and Liberty Living.
The junction at Albert Street will close on Monday 10th April for a period of 3 weeks to accommodate road and footway works. The Contractor will also be commencing work at the McDonald Road junction, outside the Library, on Monday 10th April. This work will not initially require any footpath or roadway closures but is anticipated that both this junction and the Brunswick Road junction will then close on 24th April for a period of up to 10 weeks, with local diversions to be put in place. These works will include the installation of a two stage right hand turn for cyclist using this junction.
Works are progressing well and we are still programmed to complete summer 2017.
In addition to the above and, as communicated previously, the City of Edinburgh Council will be installing a number of planters and trees to Leith Walk at various locations North of Pilrig Street. The planters will be on site the mornings of 10th and 11th April, with the trees to be planted on the 12th and 13th April.
Edinburgh Tram to Newhaven
