Edinburgh trams to start running from Gogar depot to the airport

Edinburgh trams will start running along a 2.8km stretch of tracks, with residents able to see them for the first time.

The overhead power cables between the tram depot at Gogar Castle Road and Edinburgh Airport will go live on November 26.

Testing will then begin, with the vehicles making regular trips between the two points.

The trams have been tested before, but only on short tracks at the Gogar depot. This is the first time they will set off on a part of track which will be used once the network is up and running.

Residents near the lines are asked to take care as the wires go live and the tracks start to be used. They are asked to stay away from the overhead wires and to be careful when crossing the tracks as the trams move quietly and quickly.

Tram road crossings are at Castle Gogar Road, Gogarburn tram stop, Gogar Mains Farm, which is a private road, and Eastfield Avenue at the airport.

Cllr Lesley Hinds said: “Testing is a vital part of the development of Edinburgh’s tram system to make sure it’s safe and reliable for future service. We have been in touch with residents and businesses along the route to make sure they know the tests are taking place and so they have important safety advice.
