I’d like to give you a brief update on our work in the Bellevue area which continues to progress well.
As you are aware we’re carrying out our work in five phases to help minimise disruption as much as possible. Phase three of our work will start in Bellevue on Monday 2 September. For approximately four weeks, both Bellevue and Bellevue Crescent will be closed and parking restrictions will be in place. If possible, we’ll keep some parking spaces available. Signed diversion routes will be in place for motorists and commuters.
We’ll be working Monday to Friday between 7am and 4pm, and extended hours and weekends when possible. Local residents will receive a letter in the next few days.
We know that this is a busy area and wish to assure everyone that work will progress as quickly as possible and we’ll be doing everything we can to limit delays and disruption.
Thank you for your patience and continued support.

I write to provide an update to my ongoing carriageway resurfacing programme in and around Leith prior to the commencement of the work to extend the tram to Newhaven.
Works on site at Pilrig Street junction, Dalmeny Street and East London Street are due to complete at the end of next week (Friday 12 July) after which time the main contractor has a company recess for 2 weeks.
On returning to site on the 29 July, the work to redesign the junction at Duke Street and Easter Road will fully commence (some preparatory work will take place next week) while the majority of work ongoing elsewhere will be predominantly carriageway resurfacing work.
To this effect, please find below a basic table detailing the proposed locations, dates and traffic management for the resurfacing work and I have also attached the full programme in the form of a Gantt chart. I will caveat this and remind everyone that dates are approximate as any delays can have a knock on effect, however the order of work should remain the same and I will update EdinTravel as works progress.
I will also explain that the programme has extended due to additional work being requested and some issues on site with traffic signal installations however the main resurfacing work should throw up little in the way of unforeseen delays and there will be no further additional work included in the programme unless it is deemed important and we create space in the existing programme. We also remain in full contact with the team leading the Tram extension with regards their preparatory work and start date.
As before, residents and traders will receive notices prior to the start of work in their area with more specific details, and I will forward a copy of these notices on as appropriate. If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
