Raeburn Place area, Edinburgh

Start date: 6 January 2020

Approximate duration: 30 weeks

We’re investing £2.2 million to upgrade our gas network in the Stockbridge area of Edinburgh and the first section of our project will begin on Monday 6 January.

This essential work involves the replacement of our old, metal gas mains with new plastic pipe to help ensure a continued safe and reliable gas supply.

In agreement with the City of Edinburgh Council and other local authorities, our work in the Raeburn Place area will begin on 6 January and take approximately 30 weeks to complete. Road closures and temporary traffic lights will be in place at different times throughout our project, but we’ve split the work into two phases to minimise disruption.

For the first few weeks of our project, we’ll have a designated person from our Customer Service team on site – you’ll find them in Deanhaugh Street.

 

Phase one – approximately eight weeks
Our project will start in Deanhaugh Street on 6 January. The road will be closed and a signed diversion route will be in place for motorists. We’ll also have temporary traffic lights in place at the junctions with Hamilton Place and Haugh Street for approximately four weeks.

 

Phase two – approximately 22 weeks
Our engineers will then progress into Raeburn Place and the road will be closed to westbound traffic for the duration of this phase. A signed diversion route will be in place for motorists.

For the duration of our project, there will be restricted parking on Deanhaugh Street and Raeburn Place. Other parking suspensions will be in place at times in surrounding streets. We’ll have a dedicated person onsite throughout our project to help co-ordinate bin collections and deliveries for businesses.
