Trams will start running in Edinburgh tomorrow after a troubled seven-year construction project.
Passenger services will begin at 5am on Saturday 31 May, linking the Scottish capital’s airport and its city centre.
The project to create the line began in 2007 but has been marred by disputes, stoppages and funding gaps.
Transport convener councillor Lesley Hinds said: “The tram project has been hugely challenging for the people of Edinburgh but now there seems to be a growing positivity in the city about the start of a brand new transport service.
“I know from first-hand experience how trams can transform and enhance a city and I am determined Edinburgh should make the very most of the opportunities ahead.”
