MORE YORK PLACE DISRUPTION – BE PREPARED

Submitted by Editor on Fri, 08/04/2022 - 12:04

A temporary road closure will be in place next week from 9 am on Tuesday 12 April to 5 am on Wednesday 13 April.

‘Surfacing and lining work’ means eastbound lanes at York Place and Broughton Street will close completely, in addition to existing closure of westbound lanes. Traffic will not be able to exit Broughton Street by turning left onto Picardy Place.

Clearly signposted diversions will be via Abercromby Street, Albany Street and East London Street and/or London Road, Regent Road and South St David Street.

COUNCIL BIN-HUB ENGAGEMENT – A WASTED OPPORTUNITY

Submitted by Editor on Wed, 17/11/2021 - 13:46

A Council engagement event played out earlier today in Broughton St Mary’s Parish Church.

It was intended to explain to, and answer questions from, the public about proposals for bin-hubs across Broughton.

Some of those who attended (mostly, we think, in the Edinburgh World Heritage Site) had received postal notification of the event. Others in Broughton received no notification, and depended on publicity from Spurtle and the New Town & Broughton Community Council.

NORTH BRIDGE – PARTIAL CLOSURE COULD LAST 9 MONTHS

Submitted by Editor on Tue, 02/11/2021 - 12:00

North Bridge will close to northbound traffic for up to nine months, starting on 13 November.

The western footpath will also be closed, but the eastern one will be reopened.

In addition, North Bridge will close completely from 8pm to 6am (between Princes Street and the High Street) on 13, 14 and 15 November.

The closures are to facilitate relaying of pavement slabs and kerbs, surfacing works, drainage upgrades, and repairs to waterproofing.

On the underside of the bridge, repairs will be made to the reinforced concrete deck.

COUNCIL CONSULTS ON PARKING CONTROLS

Submitted by Editor on Sat, 27/02/2021 - 09:03

The Council is reviewing parking provision across the city, particularly in terms of how non-residents’ parking affects local people.

Phase 2 of this process includes a detailed look at the Bonnington area, and will probably interest Spurtle readers living in Warriston Road, Powderhall, Broughton Road, and Redbraes.

You can access the consultation online HERE.
