This event has now ended

You can catch-up on details or any broadcast and downloads here.


The Edinburgh Trams to Newhaven Project is a continuation of the existing Edinburgh Tramway Network, which runs from Edinburgh Airport to York Place. The continuation runs from York Place, down Leith Walk and then into Newhaven via Ocean Terminal.

The statutory powers to support the construction were gained in 2006 under the Edinburgh Tram (Line 1) Act 2006, however the line was not completed. The project team, headed up by Hannah Ross of the City of Edinburgh Council (CEC), have managed the legacy elements of the phase 1a and are now well on with construction of the remaining element of Line 1.

The presentation will include:

  • Hannah Ross, CEC Senior Responsible Officer setting the scene by talking to CEC policy and how the project supports this
  • Rob Leech, Anturas acting as the Project Director on behalf of CEC, will explain the project development in context of delivering CEC policy and establishing the project structure and governance
  • Steven Jackson, Turner & Townsend Project Director managing the overall project delivery will present progress to date
