NOT GONE YET

The Leith Street pedestrian bridge between the former St James Centre and the Q-Park over the road was still in place this morning. 

It had been timetabled for removal between 1.00am and 8.00am today, but the set-up fell 2 hours behind schedule and had to be temporarily abandoned. 

A second attempt to cut and remove the bridge in a series of lifts will be made tonight, wind permitting, and the road between Calton Road and Waterloo Place will probably be closed again to pedestrians, cyclists and all other vehicles. 

If the bridge cannot be shifted tonight, another effort will be made next weekend.
