As part of a consortium with Farrans, we are working to design, build and commission the section of the Edinburgh light rail or tram network that will link York Place and Newhaven. 

This new section will have eight stops and will extend further north the tram line that currently connects the airport to Haymarket station and Princes Street in the center of Edinburgh.  The budget is 120 million euros and, once completed, an estimated 16 million people will use this tram each year.
