We are planning a temporary road closure on Craigleith Hill Avenue from Monday 15th July to replace a section of water pipe.

The works are expected to last for approximately 7 weeks, during which Craigleith Hill Avenue and Carrington Road will be closed at the junction with Crewe Road South, with no through traffic permitted. Access will be maintained for pedestrians and emergency vehicles only.

Crewe Road South will remain open with two-way temporary traffic lights in place for the duration of the work.  

Parking restrictions will be in place at the bottom of Craigleith Hill Crescent near the junction of the B900 Craigleith Road, to help with traffic flow through the diversion route.

The work will involve replacing a section of water pipe to ensure customers continue to enjoy fresh, clear drinking water. 

We appreciate your patience and cooperation during these improvements, and we are committed to minimising disruption. 

Our contractor MacKenzie will carry out these works on our behalf.
