Leith festival has a long tradition of community engagement and celebration. Dating back to 1907, the festival has provided over a hundred years of entertainment to the residents of Leith. The last few years have seen Leith Festival grow to encompass not just Gala day, but a week-long celebration of all things Leith with local businesses, community groups and organisations all joining in.
We couldn’t run this event without the help of volunteers. We need stewards primarily to help on Gala day. Setting up, the pageant, and cleaning up after the event are all things which an extra few pairs of hands make a massive difference in. If you can spare a few hours any time from 8am through to around 7pm on the 9th June, or from around 5/6pm to 9.30/10pm on the 17th we would love to welcome you to the team.
Work is due to get under way this week to improve safety at various locations on Leith Walk, including what is believed to be the first installation in Scotland of a particular type of cycleway delineators. They will be put in place at locations on the east and west side of Leith Walk at Pilrig Street and the east side of Leith Walk at Brunswick Road. This work is being carried out by MacKenzie Construction.
In addition to these new delineators, Leith Programme Phase 4 contractor Crummock will carry out a series of remedial works to road surfacing defects, road gullies/manholes and additional safety markings to the cycleway. The same traffic management sub-contractor will be used in order to coordinate the works and to minimise traffic disruption while these works are ongoing.
The programme of construction works will be as follows:
- 18th April – 20th April: Crummock undertaking remedial works to road surfacing defect on the northbound lane at Pilrig Street junction
- 23rd April – 4th May: MacKenzie Construction undertaking works to install cycleway delineators at the locations noted above
- 23rd April – 4th May: (for a period of up to 2 weeks) Crummock undertaking further defect remedial works at various locations between Iona Street and Brunswick Street
