It means the road will be inaccessible to vehicles from 6am to 10pm.

However, two other streets are to reopen to vehicles on Tuesday evening.

Saturday saw West Parliament Square, Parliament Square and St Giles Street close in their entirety from 6am until 10pm on Wednesday, September 11.

West College Street and South College Street were shut from 6am on Friday morning as filming officially got underway.

Both streets will remain closed to traffic until 10pm on Monday, September 23, although local access to the Festival Theatre loading bays on South College Street will be allowed.
