Update 01-Aug-2020
SGN roadworks will restart from 10-Aug-2020. This phase of the works, planned to last about 6 weeks, will involve closure of Redford Road between Colinton Road and Redford Drive (local access maintained); closure of Thorburn Road at Colinton Road (not at the same time as the closure of Redford Road); and temporary traffic lights on Colinton Road.

Update April 2020
Roads reinstated and works suspended during Covid-19 lockdown period.

SGN started a major pipework renewal project in Bridge Road on 12th October 2019. Bridge Road was closed for three weeks (had hoped for two weeks). During the closure period, bus services 45 and 400 did not serve Colinton, and were diverted via Craiglockhart Avenue and Lanark Road. From there, the works continued along Colinton Road to the junction with Redford Road, taking up to mid-December.

The next phase of the works is Redford Road from Colinton Road to Dreghorn Link which is scheduled to last from early January to May 2020. This will involve periods of closure of Redford Road from Colinton Road to Old Farm Place, then Old Farm Place to Redford Drive, and the use of temporary traffic lights.

Parking restrictions will also be in place on these and other adjoining roads during these works. SGN's information presentation can be seen on Colinton Community Council's website at SGN presentation on CCC website
