Improvement works at Easter Road

Road closures will affect the junctions of London Road, Easter Road, Regent Road and Abbeymount for the next 11 weeks.

Drivers are being advised to allow extra time when travelling near the area, or to take an alternative route, to avoid delays.

Work, which will improve the area for pedestrians and cyclists, includes traffic signal upgrades along with road resurfacing and footpath improvements, began on Monday, 14 September and will be carried out in two phases.

The first phase, lasting around six weeks, will result in the full closure of the junction between London Road and Regent Road. Diversions will be put in place for traffic and the footway will remain open.

The second phase, which will begin in around six weeks, will require the closure of Carlton Terrace Brae. Traffic will also be diverted during this period.

Transport Convener, Councillor Lesley Hinds, said: “This work is being carried out in response to the public’s needs and will allow us to carry out essential improvements to the area, which will benefit both drivers and pedestrians.

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused to those travelling nearby, though we are working to minimise disruption, with a series of diversions in place.”
