The continued closure of the Water of Leith Walkway between Sunbury Place and Dean Path is deeply frustrating.
It was due to be re-opened initially in October 2021 but has encountered a series of issues along the way. The latest update that has been provided is that it should be finally open around the beginning of May.
Hal Osler said, “We will all be disappointed by this last minute further setback, but hopefully in a few short weeks we can enjoy this part of our beloved Water of Leith Walkway. Like many of us I would have hoped the walkway would be open by now but we seem to be nearly there and I would like to thank residents for their patience”.
In other news - Up-river from Dean Path, the section of the walkway passing the Britannia Hotel is in urgent need to repair and engagement continues with the landowners to make the walkway safe for use.
