Trams to Newhaven: Notification of First Round of Public Consultation

(The following is reproduced verbatim from an email from Edinburgh Council, via, for information only. It does not represent LCCC’s policy in any way.)

Beginning 19 March, the City of Edinburgh Council will undertake six weeks of public consultation and engagement on taking Edinburgh Trams to Newhaven. This will provide the public, local business and stakeholders with general information on the project, specific details around traffic management during construction and the proposed permanent design. We will also outline our current proposals on how we aim to support local business during the construction period.

During consultation your views will be sought on traffic management and phasing.

Work in these areas is expected to last for up to 18 months. Continue reading
