However no workers arrived at the site on the B1361, near its junction with Royal Musselburgh Golf Club, and SGN has confirmed it has moved the project back "until February".

A spokesperson said: "We have postponed the work until next month but do not have a new start date at this time.

"We will let people know when it is rescheduled to start as soon as possible."
