Shandwick Place utility diversions completed ahead of revised schedule

The City of Edinburgh Council have announced that the utility diversion works on Shandwick Place have been completed ahead of the revised schedule and that the firm in charge of installing the tram tracks and overhead equipment will now be able to move in to commence this work.

As has been pointed out on The Scotsman website by readers to say the work has been completed ahead of schedule is incorrect as according to the original plan the trams should have been up and running by now but nonetheless it is still good news that the latest revised schedule seems to be working according to plan and that the important utility diversion work in this location has now been completed.

It is now planned that INFRACO – the company charged with installing the infrastructure for the tramway – will move onto the site to put in the tracks and overhead line equipment. They will also be able to move in to North St Andrew Street as the utility diversions have also been completed there.

It is hoped that Shandwick Place may be able to be reopened to traffic in 2013.
