Lothian has announced changes to its network as work is set to begin on Leith Walk for the next stage of the Trams to Newhaven project.
The Leith Walk corridor will see significant traffic management put in place from Saturday 20 June 2020, resulting in diversions to all bus services in this area. The main daytime services affected include the 7, 11, 14, 16, 22, 25 and 49, which will follow different routes on journeys towards Leith.
Services 7, 14, 16, 22, 25 and 49 towards Leith will be diverted via London Road and Easter Road. Citybound journeys will continue to serve their normal route up Leith Walk.
Service 11 towards Ocean Terminal will be diverted via Annandale Street, Bellevue Road, McDonald Road and Broughton Road. Citybound journeys will continue to serve their normal route on Pilrig Street and Leith Walk.
Full Leith Walk Diversions can be found here.
The company is urging anyone who requires to make a necessary journey to plan their journey in advance using the online journey planner or via the Lothian app which offers journey planning tools and real-time service updates, all integrated with Google Maps. The app can be downloaded from tfeapp.com.
Lothian will also provide information on buses, at bus stops and through its social media channels, including updates throughout the construction works.
