Update 26-Mar-2020
Works suspended until further notice.

Scottish Water is planning an estimated 30 weeks of works in Colinton Dell, making improvements to their sewer network, beginning in late February 2020.

They have made a planning application to make a works compound in the former Colinton Station area, including the car park normally accessed from Gillespie Road, and the level ground close to that. It also involves vehicular access along the Water of Leith Walkway from there, including Colinton Tunnel, to their sewer site a distance downstream in the Kingsknowe area. The plan is for public access to the car park to be made available at weekends during the works.

There is an information event, a drop-in session in Colinton Library on Monday 17 February between 4pm and 7pm, by the Scottish Water project team.

Similar works to the sewers will be taking place elsewhere, including in the Juniper Green and Currie areas which is expected to involve temporary closures of sections of the Water of Leith Walkway in these localities.
