This work is scheduled to commence on Monday 8th January 2018 and will last approximately 4 weeks depending on weather and other circumstances.
Traffic on Great Junction Street will be restricted to northbound only in order for the works to be carried out safely.
To facilitate this the following closures will be in place:
- Great Junction Street from the Bonnington Road junction to North Junction Street/Ferry Road Junction to all vehicular traffic travelling south towards the foot of Leith Walk. North bound traffic towards North Junction Street will be maintained for the duration of the construction phase.
- Cables Wynd from Yardheads to Great Junction Street will also be closed for the duration of the construction phase.
The diversion route for south bound traffic that would normally travel along Great Junction Street is via Coburg Street, Sandport Place and Henderson Street, to arrive back at Great Junction Street.
Traffic will be managed in and out of Mill Lane, Taylor Gardens and Ballantyne Road by the contractor. There will be left turn only policy for traffic exiting Bonnington Road, Bangor Road and Ballantyne Road for the duration of the works. There will be a right-turn only policy for traffic exiting Taylor Gardens and Mill Lane for the duration of the works.
Parking suspensions will be in place to suspend waiting, loading and unloading on both sides of Great Junction Street from Bonnington Road junction to North Junction Street, Cables Wynd from Yardheads to Great Junction Street, King Street in its entirety, 25m west along Bonnington Road from GJS, and Coburgh Street in its entirety.
