As work continues on the construction of the Trams to Newhaven project in Edinburgh we take another look at recent progress on Leith Walk. This time we are at the Edinburgh end of the road where we see some more track being laid as the work seems to be continuing at a rapid pace. Roy Calderwood is our photographer.
The below view is taken looking south west towards the city centre and was captured from a temporary crossing through the worksite at the Montgomery Street/Annandale Street junction. This section of Leith Walk – and all parts in the areas which were not formerly in Leith before that became part of the City of Edinburgh – does not actually have Leith Walk addresses. There are several different names on each side along the street. Thus on the left behind the trees (which will be removed as the landscaping is due to be changed before the trams start running) is Elm Row while the tenements on the near right are Gayfield Place.
