Edinburgh Tram Enquiry. Public call for Evidence and Issues

(With apologies for being late to post this)

The Edinburgh Tram Inquiry is currently retrieving and reviewing documents, and gathering further material as part of the investigation into the Edinburgh Trams project. As part of that process the Inquiry is now keen to hear from the public on two themes:

  1. What issues should the Inquiry be investigating in detail?
  2. What direct evidence does the public have on the consequences of the failure to deliver the project in the time, within the budget and to the extent projected?

Further details and an online survey is available via the website (www.edinburghtraminquiry.org) or by contacting the Secretary to the Inquiry.

The deadline for responses is 4 August 2015.
