Surfacing Projects
Dalkeith High Street
Client: Midlothian Council

Work on this £1.2 million Public Realm streetscape Improvement Works for Dalkeith High Street, near Edinburgh commenced in February 2011.

Works involved widening existing footways, forming new parking bays and resurfacing the main carriageway between South Street and Buccleuch Street in Dalkeith.

This high profile contract for Midlothian Council required a high specification finish which included Yorkstone slabs to the footways, Scottish whin kerbs and Portuguese granite setts for the new lay-bys.

Drainage and street lighting works were carried out, along with new stainless steel bollards being installed throughout the length of the street.

Vennels (alleys) were also given a refurbishment with Yorkstone slabs and traditional whin setts.

The High Street has become a more pedestrian friendly place for residents and shoppers to enjoy.  Have a look at our short time-lapse video to see how we achieved this whilst maintaining pedestrian access.
