This helpful update from Edinburgh & Lothians Greenspace......

Please find an update on the progress of the Water of Leith Walkway upgrades below.

The main contractor has set up their compound at the Gillespie Road Car Park area and the path has been closed between the end of the asphalt path at Lanark Road and the path at the Gillespie Road Car Park. The works should continue here for approx.. 3 weeks up to the end of June. Once the path is complete in this location and the surface given time to consolidate it will then be re-opened. This is subject to delivery of materials and any inclement weather which could hold up progress.

The next section between Gillespie Road Car Park and the by-pass will be delivered from the start of July for approx.. 3 weeks. The section at Spylaw Park may be delayed due to the proposed lighting works that are currently being designed by CEC Street Lighting at the moment.

Further signage will be put up for the section between Gillespie Road Car Park and the by-pass before it is closed for the works to commence.

We will be in touch with further information on site, by email and through social media as the project progresses.

Kind regards
