The ornamental stonework on the pillar at the entrance to Braidburn Valley Park was knocked off by a bridge repair vehicle in February. At long last their insurers have accepted the claim and a contract is being let by Edinburgh Council Bridges and Structures Department to have the stone urn and damaged pillar replaced.

The stone mason will source stone with as close a colour match to the original as possible. it is anticipated that the work will be completed by the end of July 2013.
