As part of the on-going Water of Leith investment to improve the environment, Scottish Water are due to start works on a project to upgrade the CSO (combined sewer overflow) at St Cuthbert’s Court on the corner of Westgarth Avenue and Colinton Road.

They have written to say:

“This work will require the closure of a section of Colinton Road between Westgarth Avenue and just beyond Thorburn Road for a period of 4 weeks, starting on the 27th June. These works have been agreed with the City of Edinburgh council and hopefully being timed mainly during the school holidays we will manage to minimise the disruption to traffic.

There will be a local diversion in place via Redford Road, Redford Drive and Westgarth Avenue.  

Pedestrian access will be maintained during the work.

A letter has been sent to customers in the area.”
