Trinity Sewer Upgrade

New banners displayed on site at Trinity

Work to replace the rising main along Trinity Road is due to start at the beginning of March. The sewer pipe is deteriorating and needs to be replaced to reduce the risk of bursts and ensure it continue to operate and is fit for purpose into the future.

Update April 2017:

Work is currently on schedule with phase one which involves the installation of sheet piles. This is to ensure that the sewer pipes can be safely inserted into the excavation. This work is noisy and can cause some vibration. This is being monitored to make sure that it is within acceptable limits. We would like to thank the community for their patience while this work is being carried out.

Following the completion of phase 1 the road closure will move from the junction of Trinity Lane to Primrose Bank Road. This phase is expected to take around 10 weeks to complete.

This phase involves the closure to Primrose Bank Road from the junction at Trinity Road to number 9 Primrose Bank Road. This phase is expected to take around 5 weeks to complete.

Phase 4

The final phase will involve completing the connection of the new rising main into the waste water pumping station. These works will be within the boundary of the existing Scottish Water compound and will utilise the grassed area opposite Lower Granton Road. This phase will take up to 8 weeks to complete.

There will be parking restrictions in place during these times and local diversions will be in place. Please follow all signs put in place.

The site compound will be situated on the grassed area on Lower Granton Road for the duration of the project. Unfortunately we are required to suspend parking at this section during this time. Apologies for the inconvenience this may cause.
