Leith Street will close temporarily between the junction of Princes Street (Waterloo Place) and the turning into Calton Road. Laing O'Rourke would firstly like to say sorry that this was reported in the media before you heard the news from us. It was not able to share the news at that stage as the dates had not been confirmed.

The works will take place in two phases, with the road reopening in between:

PHASE ONE
Start date: 5 May 2019-19.00
End date: 25 May 2019 -0700

PHASE TWO
Start date: 6 June 2019-19.00
End date: 11 June 2019-0700 Continue reading

SGN works in Broughton St – update

(adapted from an email from SGN)

SGN has completed its work to upgrade the gas network in Broughton Street, three weeks ahead of schedule.

Our engineers have been working extended hours and weekends throughout our project in Broughton Street, meaning our work has finished early. We have now moved on to the next stages of our project, in London Street and Forth Street.

The northbound closure of Broughton Street will remain in place as Laing O’Rourke continues its planned works as part of the Together for Edinburgh programme.

SGN Project Manager Matt Ferguson said:

I’d like to thank local business owners, residents and motorists for their continued patience and understanding throughout our time in Broughton Street. We’ll be handing the work site over to contractor Laing O’Rourke this evening.
