SGN Raeburn Place: temporary traffic lights 2-9 November

Update from SGN about their work in Raeburn Place

Our project in Raeburn Place is continuing to progress well and we're now in the final stages of our work.

To ensure the safety of our engineers and the public, we'll have temporary traffic lights in place in Raeburn Place from Monday 2 November for one week.

We will have completed our project in the area by Monday 9 November and the lights will be removed.

We'd like to say a big thank you to all Stockbridge business owners and residents for your continued patience, support and understanding for the duration of our gas mains replacement work in the area.

Kind regards

York Place Closure (Westbound) : 17 August – 12 October 2020

Adapted from an email received on 12th August from Irene Gibb (Laing O'Rourke on behalf of 'Together for Edinburgh') on the closure of York Place (westbound) in support of Tram Works, Cycle lane provision (CCWEL) and works supporting the Edinburgh St James Project 

Attached is a letter outlining the various works programmes being undertaken in and around York Place between Monday 17 August – Monday 12 October. This letter has already been shared with local residents and businesses.

In addition to details on the programmes taking place at York Place, the attached also contains contact information for individual contractors carrying out the works. See also below for information on diversions that will be put in place:

  • Diversion Route –  During the closure general traffic will be redirected down Broughton Street, turning left along Albany Street and Abercromby Place, turning left into Queen Street Gardens East and then right back onto Queen Street.
  • Diverted Buses – Lothian Buses will be redirected up Leith Street to connect with Princes Street and consequently will not be using the general traffic diversion route.
  • Parking along the Diversion Route – There will be no changes to the existing parking regulations during the period of the diversion

Please feel free to share the details above and in the attached (link  here) with community council members and local residents.

Kind regards,

Irene Gibb
