The following is not just a standard ‘Leith Programme’ announcement: the message below outlines a cluster of major projects, each of which will have a major (negative, at least during the prolonged construction period) impact on Leith Walk and its hinterland, even if well-managed.
Particularly noteworthy: no word about how any of this impacts on the completion of the existing ‘Leith Programme’, i.e. fixing Leith Walk along its whole length. Is this just absence of contingency planning – in case the tram outline business case is deemed to be not robust or the tram project start is delayed? Or has the idea to completely repair Leith Walk repairs already been abandoned?
Tram to Newhaven Update
The Outline Business Case (OBC) for taking Edinburgh’s tram service down to Leith and Newhaven will be published on the Council’s website on Tuesday 29 August at 7.00am.
