A DEADLINE of September 14 has been set for the conclusion of all talks relating to the trams project – including costs and timescales.

Talks have been taking place between council chief executive Sue Bruce and officials from the construction consortium since councillors approved plans to build the line to St Andrew Square, and a final deadline has now been set for a formal agreement to be signed.

A council spokesman said: “Following the council meeting there was contact with the consortium and an exchange of legal documents. The settlement needs to be concluded on or before September 14.
