Is More Tram Fun On The Way In Edinburgh?

This article on the BBC web site is entitled Edinburgh trams: Plans to extend the line to Newhaven.

This is said.

Edinburgh’s tram network should be extended to Newhaven, a report to councillors has recommended.

It is estimated the three mile extension would cost £144.7m to build. The line currently stops at York Place in the city centre.

Edinburgh city council is looking into extending the tram network to Newhaven, Ocean Terminal or the foot of Leith Walk.

Councillors will vote next week.

As there are elections in Scotland in May, this could restart the saga of the building of the current Edinburgh trams, which kept Glaswegians and Sassenachs so amused.

I doubt they’ll start the extension of the tram system before the end of this decade!
