Edinburgh Tram latest phase of works announced

City of Edinburgh Council yesterday confirmed the latest phase of works for the beleaguered Edinburgh Tram scheme.

A new diversion will be introduced for buses in the east end of Princes Street on 3 March while, towards the end of that month, work sites at Shandwick Place and Haymarket will be extended to include West Maitland Street.

The council said the latest traffic management plans were being introduced following “in-depth engineering and construction planning” by it in co-operation with contractor Bilfinger Berger.

The latest traffic management plans are being introduced following in-depth engineering and construction planning by City of Edinburgh Council in co-operation with the contractors.

“It is encouraging that work on the tram project continues apace and we will be extending worksites across the city centre to make sure the project is being delivered to programme, as we outlined last December,” said council transport convener councellor Gordon Mackenzie. “Thanks to new positive relationships, regular discussions now take place between the council, the contractors and Transport Scotland to ensure the project can be delivered as efficiently as possible.
