Tram disruption in capital

Transport leaders in Edinburgh have announced the city’s main thoroughfare will be cleared of traffic for at least eight months of tramworks.

Princes Street will become a no-go area from 21 February under plans which are expected to cause major disruption to traffic in the heart of the capital.

Pedestrians will be banned from walking along the south side of Princes Street, next to the gardens, although three access points will be provided, including one to serve the National Gallery of Scotland.

If completed on time, Edinburgh’s trams will be up and running by 2011.
