Safer Neighbourhoods Stronger Communities

Notification of major gas replacement works: Morningside Road area of Edinburgh 17 July 2023

Notification of major gas replacement works: Morningside Road area of Edinburgh 17 July 2023

The following Alert is being circulated on behalf of SGN


We’ll shortly begin work to replace our old metal gas mains and services with new plastic pipes, to ensure a continued safe and reliable gas supply to the Morningside Road area.


We’re aware this is a busy area so our work has been split into phases to reduce disruption as much as possible.


After close consultation with the local authority, phase one of our project will begin on Monday 17 July and take approximately 13 weeks to complete. We’re carrying out this phase now as it’s during the school holidays and the roads are typically quieter during peak times.

Phase one of our project will begin in Craighouse Road, and our engineering team will then continue to the following streets: Myreside Road, Colinton Road, South Gillsland Road, Merchiston Gardens, Meggetland Terrace and Balcarres Street.


During our project, some junction closures will also be enforced to ensure everyone’s safety. 


Temporary traffic lights will be in place at times, alongside on-street parking restrictions. Access will be given to driveways and entrance gates at all times unless previously agreed with the occupier.


We’ll update you with details of phase two nearer to the start date. 


Our colleagues will be keeping to social distancing guidelines on our sites, and we’d ask communities to keep their distance too.


Please feel free to share this information with anyone you think may be impacted by our project.


If you have any specific enquiries about this project, please call us on 0800 912 1700 and our customer experience team will be happy to help.


We’ll be working as quickly as possible to complete our work and will be making every effort to minimise inconvenience.


Thank you for your support and if there’s anything else you need, please let me know.
