Planned Road works for 2022/23


The Council's planned roadworks for 2022/23 have been announced. Below is the list of streets in Drum Brae/Gyle ward where works are planned.

 

Road carriageway surface treatment on:

Craigmount View, Terrace, Gardens and Avenue

 

Footway surface treatment on:

Barntongate Drive

Clermiston Crescent, Drive, Hill and Green

Craigmount Avenue, Bank West, Gardens, Grove, Park, Terrace and View

Craigs Avenue, Crescent, Gardens and Grove

Drum Brae Avenue and Drum Brae South

 

This does mean that the promised resurface of Craigmount Park will not take place this financial year.

Local councillor Ed Thornley said, "While it's very good to see all these works planned for our area, it is also disappointing that the promised resurface of Craigmount Park will be delayed to next year.

"Last year, Drum Brae/Gyle received the least financial input into our roads and pavements of all Edinburgh's council wards. While it is encouraging to see improvements planned for this year, it will not fix the whole problem. Roads all across our communities are in a truly terrible state, and these fixes will only cut the tip off the iceberg.

"We need proper increased investment into our roads to tackle the enormous backlog that has been allowed to develop over the last five years."
