"I write to inform you the Water of Leith Walkway between Spylaw Park and West Mill Road will be closed from Monday 1st August until Wednesday 10th August while improvement works are undertaken.
Works include path resurfacing to provide an improved surface. The surface material requires a week to set before we can allow access across it. The closure is unfortunate, and we apologise for the inconvenience; however, to ensure the surface has time to bind we do request the public respect the closure and use an alternative route.
The installation of ducting will also be undertaken and this will allow lighting to be installed at a later date.
For information, advance signage was installed on site today and further closure signage and maps showing suggested alternative routes will be in place for the duration of the closure."
