Leith Programme Constitution Street progress update

Please see information from Alan Dean below

The Leith Programme –email update 28 – Constitution Street open to traffic – 1 August

 Following the road resurfacing work, Constitution Street fully reopened to two-way traffic again on 1 August. The squads on site will now be focusing on completing the laying of the Caithness slabs on both east and west side footways in order to endeavour to meet the 16 August completion schedule.

 The west side footway, from Maritime Lane northwards, has been widened and a significant amount of resurfacing has already been completed there. For people who haven’t seen this part of Constitution Street recently, it’s well worth a visit to see the changes that are being made. These changes, it is hoped, will result in the area getting a real lift that benefits residents, businesses and visitors and increase the street’s attractiveness as a destination point.       

 New photos, showing the most recent work, have been uploaded onto our image gallery.

 If you require any further information then please don’t hesitate to contact me.
