Scottish Water are presently doing some much-needed works to a sewer main on Craigleith Road.
Unfortunately to enable these works, the road has had to be closed just above Orchard Drive and it is scheduled to remain so - probably until the end of August.
Hal Osler said, “ I can appreciate that, to many in the surrounding area, this has caused an inconvenience with diversions causing confusion and much-needed parking being removed. However properties on Craigleith Road have been seriously affected by recent and historic flooding.
"Some residents had to move to alternative accommodation to allow their properties to be made habitable once more. It took long term pressure from residents for these major works to be commissioned but they are intended to make this part of the system robust enough for the future.”
