SGN gas replacement works update for Raeburn Place area, Edinburgh

(adapted from emails from SGN)

Following on from this post, here is SGN’s latest on their work in the Raeburn Place area.

Our work is progressing really well and phase one of our project in Deanhaugh Street will be completed over the weekend. This means our engineers will start work on phase two of our project on Monday 10 February.

Raeburn Place will be closed to westbound traffic for the duration of phase two and a signed diversion route will be in place for motorists. Buses travelling westbound will also be following diversion routes.

Some parking restrictions will remain in place but pedestrian access to Raeburn Place will continue to be available at all times.

Regarding buses, SGN says

Lothian Buses have confirmed the following changes, taking affect from early Tuesday morning (11 February).

  • No: 36                                 Will return to its normal route.
  • No: 24, 29 and 42            Going into town, will return to its normal route.
  • No: 24, 29 and 42            Going out of town, the current diversion will stay in place.

Lothian Buses will update its website to reflect this. LB also advises that  if anyone has any further enquiries regarding the buses their Customer Service team will be happy to help.

SGN also say

It is with regret that neither Matt Ferguson (Project Manager) or myself are able to attend NTBCC’s meeting on Monday. However if there are any further concerns we can help with please let me know and I’ll pick it up on my return. Or my colleague Katie Lobban – will help.

I’d like to assure that we will do everything we can to help the local residents and customers to support them and tailor our day-to-day services to their individual needs to make sure we’re helping to support them during our works.
