Coltbridge Viaduct is part of a disused Victorian railway line, located in the Roseburn/Murrayfield area of Edinburgh. The triple-arched viaduct spans the Water of Leith, Coltbridge Avenue and the Water of Leith Walkway.

The integrity of the structure was being compromised by the growth of vegetation and erosion of mortar on the underside of the arches, causing risk of falling debris.

The scope comprised:
• Vegetation removal
• Drainage
• Masonry repairs
• Waterproofing
• Extensive scaffolding
• Other refurbishment works
