City of Edinburgh Council Transport Convener, Councillor Lesley Hinds continues to be upbeat about the prospects for Edinburgh's trams staying on track with the revised schedule.

Today, the Council released some images showing progress of the line including track laid between Edinburgh International Airport and Ingliston Park and curving trackworks being laid at Gogarburn (above).

Pictured below is the track being laid at the West End of Princes Street.

“The tram project has continued to make good and steady progress throughout the summer months with many sections of the line now clearly visible to residents and visitors," said Hinds in a statement.

“With construction work along the entire length of the line from the tram stop at Edinburgh International Airport to the York Place turn-around terminus, we are on schedule to complete the project and run passenger services by Summer 2014."
