Queen’s Funeral Cortege at West Craigs

I & H Brown’s site team at West Craigs has received high praise from Police Scotland for their work in preparing our West Craigs site ahead of Queen Elizabeth II’s Funeral Cortège travelling through the site on route to Edinburgh Airport

The procession travelled from St Giles Cathedral to Edinburgh Airport on 13th September travelling down Turnhouse Road before the coffin was transported by RAF Aircraft to London.

Police Scotland contacted the West Craigs site team and requested all TM was removed and the roadway, which was still in construction, looked in the best possible condition. The team immediately got to work in preparation and received a heartfelt thank you from Police Scotland for their efforts.

A member of the Police Scotland team contacted Scott Brown saying ‘I ended up dealing with one of your Project Managers, Andy Linton who was absolutely superb in assisting with our requirements. Nothing was a hassle and Andy and his team did a cracking job to ensure the road was in best possible condition for the convoy to pass over it. Andy is a credit to your business and I would appreciate if you could give him the praise.’

It is great that we could contribute, even in this small way, to ensuring the late Queen’s final journey was a smooth one. It is a way of showing our gratitude for her 70 years of service to the UK. A big thanks to the West Craigs team.
