Filming for Fast and Furious 9 officially gets underway on Friday.

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.

Calton Road is shut from Calton Hill to the entrance of Waverley Gate Gate car park until 10pm on Thursday, September 12, as is Waterloo Place.

Access to the entrance to the Waverley Gate car park to New Street from Calton Road is also set to be "restricted" from Friday.

A 'filming advice notice' located on Calton Road reads: "Access may be restricted for small periods around Calton Road, Calton Road drop off and pickup facilities and New Street car park will remain open."

Waterloo Place was closed from Monday as crews began preparing filming locations.

"There may be some delay to pedestrians and vehicles on access routes. Please allow some extra time for this."

Images show crews setting up filming locations earlier in the week.

A total of 52 roads are set to be closed during the course of filming, which is currently slated to last until Sunday, September 22.
