Notification of gas replacement works: Charlotte Lane area Edinburgh – 25 February 2019

(adapted from an email from SGN)

As part of a project to upgrade the local gas network, we’ll shorlty begin work in Charlotte Lane. This essential work involves replacing our old mains with new plastic pipe to ensure a continued safe and reliable gas supply for the area for many years to come.

We’ve worked closely with the local authorities in planning our project which will start on Monday 25 February 2019 and take around six weeks to complete.

During our works we will have to close Charlotte Lane to through traffic and the current one-way system will be rescinded allowing access to Queensferry Street. Where possible access to businesses and car parks will be maintained.

We appreciate this closure will affect deliveries and parking, but we will work closely with the local business community on access points throughout the duration of our works. All businesses will remain open as usual.

We always aim to minimise disruption and we will make every effort to ensure our works are completed as soon as possible. If you have any specific enquiries about this project, please call us on 0131 469 1728 during office hours (8am to 4pm) or on 0800 912 1700 and our customer service team will be happy to help.

Please share this information with your colleagues, stakeholders and anyone who may be impacted by our work.

Thank you for your consideration and support.

Kind regards

Caroline Lawrie, Stakeholder and Community Manager
