In Pictures: Construction works continue at Newhaven

newhaven-rc

This photo is looking west towards the stabling area which is then followed by a public space before the junction with Sandpiper Drive. The western end of the tramstop will be in the right foreground. Lindsay Road, where this picture is taken from (on board a bus), is only one way westbound at the moment with eastbound traffic using an alternative route behind the flats. The flats are all built on land reclaimed from the Forth following the construction of the Western Breakwater at the start of World War II. Newhaven Harbour is out of sight beyond the furthest flats in the distance. It was September 1956 when trams last ran here but in 2023 that should all change!
