Sacyr and Farrans are awarded the extension of the Edinburgh tram

The construction of the infrastructure will begin in September, with a total budget of 120 million euros, and will last for 40 months.

The joint venture formed by Sacyr and Farrans has been awarded the Infrastructure and Systems contract which covers the design and construction, systems integration, testing, commissioning and bringing into operational service of the Edinburgh Tram York Place to Newhaven project.

This 4.7 kilometer new stretch will have eight stops and will extend the tram line to the north of the city, which currently connects the airport with Haymarket Station and Princes Street in the City Centre. The project total budget stands at 120 million euros.

The Early Contractor Involvement stage will begin in mid May, when the SNF Joint Venture will commence to work in collaboration with the other contractor (utilities diversion), Morrison Utility Services, the City of Edinburgh Council and the other stakeholders to develop the design and program of the works.


16 million users 

The construction of the infrastructure will begin in September this year and will have a duration of 40 months. The first passengers are projected to use the new line at the beginning of 2023.. 

When it begins to operate, the new line connecting the airport with the northern area of Newhaven will serve 16 million people per year.

Growth in the United Kingdom

The United Kingdom is one of the markets in which Sacyr plans to grow in the coming years. Last year, the Spanish multinational was awarded the contract for the design and construction of the A6 highway between Dungiven and Drumahoe in Northern Ireland, with a total budget of 229 million pounds (258 million euros). 

The project includes the design and construction of a 26 kilometers highway. The works, which began last October, will have a duration of four years. 

Sacyr is also currently delivering the design and construction of the Ulster University new campus, in Belfast.
