Pride aim for tram project

Have your say

AN SNP minister says he wants to make Edinburgh’s trams into a project Scotland can be proud of.

The party was opposed to the trams until the Scottish Government intervened last month and appointed Transport Scotland to a key role in the project.

Infrastructure and Investment Secretary Alex Neil told the SNP conference in Inverness: “We are determined now we are involved in the management of the project to do our damnedest to make sure from now the trams project in Edinburgh is run properly and is something we can be proud of in Scotland, instead of being ashamed.”
