Temporary resurfacing works on North and South St David Street

From today (Monday 29 October), resurfacing work will take place on North and South St David Street, lasting approximately three weeks.

Two-way traffic will be maintained on North and South St David Street during these works, although St Andrew Square / George Street junction will be closed over approximately four nights to allow for essential night-time working on that area.

Councillor Lesley Hinds, Transport Convener, said: "The carriageway surface on North and South St David Street is in a poor condition so I'm pleased that we've been able to take advantage of this 'window of opportunity' before Princes Street reopens fully to get this sorted. It's also sensible to get the work completed now before winter arrives. I know from personal experience that the uneven road surface has made bus journeys on North and South St David Street pretty uncomfortable of late so I'm sure all road users - motorists, bus passengers and pedestrians - will be glad to see the road resurfaced."

The resurfacing work has been financed through the Council's Capital Roads Programme.

George McKendrick, Lothian Buses Operations Manager, said: "We appreciate the City of Edinburgh Council's endeavours to improve the city centre road surfacing, which will enable Lothian Buses to improve the quality of our journeys for our passengers."
