In Pictures: Constitution Street works continue

In a little over three years time we should be able to enjoy a tram ride to Leith and Newhaven in Edinburgh but before then there will be lots of construction work going on with the first phase having got underway in late 2019. Concentrating on Constitution Street currently the first works have seen utilities diverted from the path of the tramway while signage is already in place of the location of two of the new stops. John Hampton took a trip to Constitution Street to bring us these images.

This short section of Constitution Street has now seen the completion of utility diversion work with the hardcore now being rolled into place before the full concrete base is laid.

This banner shows the site of The Shore tramstop, one of two stops to be provided on Constitution Street. The banner includes a full map of the tramway all the way between Newhaven and the Airport with stops shown.

The other stop on Constitution Street will be Foot of the Walk. This view shows the banner marking the stop, note the pictorial descriptors of the various stops too. (All Photographs by John Hampton)
