Site investigations are currently being carried out in the Marchmont area of Edinburgh. 

These site investigations are coming ahead of main construction which is currently programmed for spring 2021. This work will involve installing new sewers along Marchmont Crescent, Marchmont Road and Meadow Place along with the construction of a new large buried storage shaft in the grassed area at the junction of Warrender Park Terrace and Marchmont Road. We will continue to engage with the local community regarding these plans.

These site investigations are to determine ground conditions ahead of these future construction works and will include digging trial holes.

The work will be done in phases to reduce disruption. Theses phases are planned to take place as follows*:

  • Phase 1 - Footpath closure at Marchmont Crescent for 5 days – w/c 29th June.  Diversions will be in place
  • Phase 2 - 3No. 5 day closures on Marchmont Crescent – w/c Monday 6th July to Friday 24th July. These will be kept as small as possible to reduce lost parking. Diversion will be in place during this time
  • Phase 3 - Road Closures on Marchmont Crescent, Warrender Park Road and 2-way temporary traffic lights on Marchmont Road and parking restrictions for 4 weeks . w/c 27th July
