Project delivery

Work is scheduled to start in January 2022 for approximately 18 months.

The route has been designed and will be delivered in three sections:

  • Section 1 - Roseburn to Haymarket along the A8
  • Section 2 - Haymarket to Randolph Place along Palmerston Place, Manor Place and Melville Street
  • Section 3 - St Andrew Square to Picardy Place along St David Street

General arrangement drawings for sections 1,2 and 3

It will be delivered in advance of the public realm improvements on Charlotte Square and the George Street and First New Town project.

At St Andrew Square, we’ll use temporary materials until further changes are made as part of the following George Street and First New Town project  which will be associated with City Centre Transformation on Princes Street and Waverley Bridge.

Site investigations

We are currently undertaking site investigation works in Section 1 (Roseburn Terrace, West Coates and Haymarket Terrace) and Section 2 (The Crescents, Manor Place, Palmerston Place, Melville Street and Randolph Place). This is the last phase of investigatory works for the project and entails a number of intrusive works such as slit trenches and pavement samples to expose utility services and ground conditions to further de-risk the delivery phase of the project starting in January 2022.

Work started in September this year and will continue until the end of November 2021 with a reduced performance period during the COP26 embargo. Our enabling works contractor, Balfour Beatty, is coordinating traffic management and access of residents to buildings and shops.
