EDINBURGH’S trams project finally reached a milestone with the official handover of the Gogar depot to the city council – almost a year late.

The depot will be home to the entire tram fleet and will act as the network control centre when the service goes live in 2014.

The depot is fully electrified and testing has been taking place for the last week on five trams.

Council leader Jenny Dawe said: “There is now much more clarity surrounding the tram project, and I very much hope this continues as we move toward the final completion date of summer 2014.”
