Leith Street will close temporarily between the junction of Princes Street (Waterloo Place) and the turning into Calton Road. Laing O’Rourke would firstly like to say sorry that this was reported in the media before you heard the news from us. It was not able to share the news at that stage as the dates had not been confirmed.

The works will take place in two phases, with the road reopening in between:

PHASE ONE
Start date: 5 May 2019-19.00
End date: 25 May 2019 -0700

PHASE TWO
Start date: 6 June 2019-19.00
End date: 11 June 2019-0700 Continue reading

Picardy Place is changing: ‘what it means for you’

(with thanks to The Spurtle for alerting us to this)

Together for Edinburgh (a consortium of City of Edinburgh Council, Edinburgh St James [i.e. developers TH Real Estate], Laing ORourke, and the Scottish Futures Trust) has invited ‘important stakeholders’ (i.e. locals) to be told ‘what [the changes to Picardy Place] mean for you’.

Sessions will be at Valvona & Crolla Vincaffè, 11 Multrees Walk

  • Friday 22 September (4pm to 7pm)
  • Saturday 23 September (10am to 4pm)

The Spurtle is concerned that ‘there is no mention on the invitation of you telling them what you think about it, or of contributing to planning democracy by describing what you’d like to see at the start of the design process. As far as we can see, it will be all one-way traffic’.
