Edinburgh takeover

Following a decision to scale back the Edinburgh City Council's own project management firm 'tie' (Transport Initiatives Edinburgh) the council has appointed international consultant Turner & Townsend to project manage Edinburgh's troubled tram project.

A council meeting next week will be presented with a detailed funding package on how to meet the estimated £770 million cost of completing the tram route from the airport to St Andrew Square.

Work on laying tracks is due to start around Haymarket next month.
