Edinburgh Trams to Newhaven: innovation for a modern city

This project involves building a new 4.7 km section of track to connect the north to the center of the capital city.

Edinburgh Tram

As part of a consortium with Farrans, we have designed, built and commissioned the section of the Edinburgh light rail or tram network that will link York Place and Newhaven. 

This new section has eight stops and continues further north the tram line that currently connects the airport to Haymarket station and Princes Street in the center of Edinburgh.  The budget for the project was €240 million and, once completed, an estimated 16 million people will use this tram each year.

A widely acknowledged project

The auditor Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) has qualified our project with “excellent” scores. We have obtained 43 out of 50 points in the five categories that CCS evaluates: Respect the Community, Care about Safety, Protect the Environment, Value their Workforce and Care about Appearance.

The audit highlights our innovative relationship with the local communities, where we achieved a 9/9 score.

CCS is a non-profit organization that monitors voluntarily registered projects that agree to abide by CCS’s Code of Considerate Practice, designed to encourage best practice beyond statutory requirements.

Moreover, Trams to Newhaven was recognized with a Best Infrastructure Project Go Excellence Award and an Infrastructure Award for Transport at the Scottish Civil Engineering Awards.
