Anticipated timescales

We would like to let you know that we are on course to commence the next phase of the Leith Programme works this Summer as previously reported in our last stakeholder update. Following the Council’s approving of the making of the Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) and Redetermination Order (RSO) at the Transport and Environment Committee of 7th June 2016, the team have been working hard to complete the procurement process to appoint the contractor for the forthcoming section of works and we are confident that work will start in late August/early September.

It is anticipated that the works will take around 10 months to complete. Continue reading
