Leith Programme Stakeholder Update 109: Phase 4 (Iona Street to Brunswick Street)

(adapted from an email sent by Michael Motion of Turner & Townsend at 14:51 on 8 September. )

Dear Stakeholder

Our contractor, Crummock, returned to site as of Monday 4th September to remobilise for the completion of the Phase 4 scope of works. At that time, Brunswick Road was closed to accommodate the site compound, and will remain so until the works are completed. Iona Street was also closed to allow commencement of works to realign the kerb line, commence the road surfacing works including the raised table construction and to complete the pavement slabbing. It is likely this will take up to 3 weeks to complete, during which time Iona Street will remain closed.

In addition to the above, we are also working in the following areas:

  • Brunswick Street junction to complete the remain footpath slabbing to the S/E corner
  • Croall Place to complete the remaining Scottish Water rectification works, and to resolve surface water drainage issues
  • 2 nr road crossings on Leith Walk, north and south of Albert Street.
