Leith Walk repairs update (Stakeholder email 46: Progress update)

(Copied from Leith Central CC’s website)

The following is from Edinburgh Council, not Leith Central CC.

Dear Stakeholders

Crummock (Scotland) Ltd, our contractors, are entering the transitional phase of moving the current worksites on to the next sections and this email provides the latest estimated timescale update for these moves. We would like to apologise for the timing revisions that have taken place during this initial phase of the works and hope that any disruption and inconvenience has been kept to a minimum.  We’d like to stress that the timescales we publish are always given in good faith and based on the information available at the time.

Footway resurfacing

The contractors anticipate that:

  1. The barriers currently in place enclosing the worksite section immediately north of Pilrig Church (5A West) will be moving down to the next section (5B West) today (30 June) in order to allow the work there to commence.
  2. The barriers in place in the section north of Iona Street (5A East) should move down later  tomorrow (1 July) to the next section (5B East).
  3. The section adjacent to Springfield Street (section 7A West) should be moving later tomorrow to the next site (Section 7B West).
  4. The move of the worksite south of Smith’s Place (Section 7A East) will take slightly longer and the fencing for the next worksite (Section 7B East) should be moving later in the week.

Carriageway resurfacing

The carriageway resurfacing on the current sections will start week commencing Monday 7 July. It is intended that this will involve lane closures and further details on traffic management arrangements will follow in the next stakeholder email.

If conditions/events mean that some of the dates above will change significantly, I will email you with an update.
