Trams to Newhaven – Start of Construction Works at York Place – What it means

Adapted from an update on the ‘Trams to Newhaven‘ website dated 3 February 

“As part of the next stage of works on the Trams to Newhaven project, the temporary tram stop at York Place will be decommissioned and removed to allow the installation of a crossover linking the existing line with the new route.

To facilitate these works, from 9 February 2022 until April 2022 the tram from Edinburgh Airport will stop at the West End. Once the works at York Place are complete, from April 2022 the tram will then terminate at St Andrew Square until the new stop at Picardy Place becomes operational when the line to Newhaven opens in Spring 2023.”

So – in short – when the (now defined as temporary) York Place stop no longer receives trams as from Wednesday 9 February, trams will terminate at Shandwick Place until April 2022. Then during the period from April 2022 until ‘Spring 2023’ (the official opening date for the Trams to Newhaven extension, seemingly now accepted as June), all trams will terminate at St Andrew Square.

The update includes further information on when this phase of the Construction Work will commence, with fencing being erected to establish the construction site taking place in the early hours of Thursday 10 February 2022.
