Northbound road closure: impact on Leith Walk traffic from 2 October for 3 weeks

Antigua Street – Annandale Street north-bound road closure

On the 2 October 2022 there will be changes to the traffic management arrangements on the north-bound section of Leith Walk between Antigua Street and Annandale Street to allow final surfacing works to be undertaken .

This will involve a full north-bound road closure for approximately three weeks from the Picardy Place turnback to Annandale Street. Please note the Picardy Place turnback will remain operational throughout the duration of these works.

Buses will be using the Picardy turn back. Bus stops on York Place will still be in use and they will be using East London Street and Annandale Street to get back onto Leith Walk.

There will be diversion signage installed in the local area to inform road users of the recommended route. The main diversion route for north-bound cyclists will be Dublin Street, Abercromby Place, Albany Street, Broughton Street and East London Street while traffic will be diverted via Dundas Street, Brandon Terrace, Canonmills, Broughton Road and Bonnington Road. Traffic will also be able to access Broughton Street via York Place and the Picardy Place turnback but this will only be signed in the local vicinity in order to encourage traffic to use the above diversion. Details of Lothian Buses diversions will be listed on their website.
