Saughton Road North is closed between Kirk Loan and Sycamore Gardens meaning there is no direct access to Saughton Road North (or roads off it) from either Kirk Loan or Corstorphine High Street.

It is thought that the works will last up to a month and could cause an issue for drivers.

The move comes after the original worksite has moved to the section between Roull Road and Castle Avenue.

Vehicles can access Stenhouse Drive to Broomfield Crescent despite the closures.

Alternative routes for through traffic are via residential streets and close to Carrick Knowe primary school.

Drivers are being urged to follow all diversions and speed limits accordingly.
