When the Edinburgh Trams extension to Newhaven opens in 2023 there will be a new tramstop constructed at Picardy Place which will replace the current terminus at York Place. There have been works in Leith Street and Picardy Place for two years already as part of a redesign of the road layout and these will now be extended to include the tram construction works.
Both Leith Street and the Picardy Place roundabout are being redesigned and there is also a lot of utility diversion works ongoing to support the project at the new St James Quarter redevelopment. The work here was due to be finished by the Spring but as tram works aren’t due to take place until Spring 2021 to Spring 2022 it may be that the finished product isn’t seen until at least two years time. Obviously, with the current situation and no works taking place it may be even longer than that!
