Edinburgh Broughton Street

Start date: 7 January 2019

Approximate duration: 26 weeks


Update: Tuesday 26 February

Our work is progressing around two weeks ahead of schedule. All being well we now hope to fully reopen Broughton Street, between London Street and Albany Street on Wednesday 27 February. We'll then reopen the remainder of Broughton Street by Friday 15 March.


We’re investing £500,000 to upgrade our gas network in the Broughton Street area of Edinburgh.

This essential project us involves replacing our old gas mains with new plastic pipe to ensure a continued safe and reliable gas supply for the local area for many years to come.

We worked closely with the local authorities in planning our project which started on Monday 7 January, and will take around 26 weeks to complete.

We’ll be working in Broughton Street between York Place and the roundabout for London Street/East London Street for roughly 12 weeks. The road will be closed to northbound traffic and parking restrictions will be in place.   

We will then be working in London Street and Forth Street, and parking restrictions will be in place. During our work in Forth Street, the road will be closed in two separate sections. Motorists will be required to follow signed diversion routes.  

You’ll find further details, such as where we’ll be working, in our customer leaflet.


We’ll be working Monday to Friday between 7am-4pm, and on weekends where required.
