Roadworks expected to take almost eight months will begin in early 2020 on one of Stockbridge's busiest thoroughfares.

Deanhaugh Street will be subject to the disruption as part of Scottish Gas Network’s (SGN) £2.2m upgrade to the gas system in the area.

The upgrade will see Deanhaugh Street shut completely for eight weeks from January 6 and temporary traffic lights will be in place at the Hamilton Street and Haugh Street junctions for four weeks.

The roadworks will then move on to Raeburn Place with the work extending down to Portgower Place from Dean Street.

The road will be shut going westbound for at least 22 weeks, with a signed diversion in place via East Fettes Avenue, Inverleith Place, Inverleith Row, Brandon Street and Henderson Row.

Parking will be restricted on Deanhaugh Street and Raeburn Place for the entire 30 weeks, with parking suspensions also planned for the surrounding streets at times during the work.

The work will see metal gas pipes replaced with plastic pipes.
