Work on building the tram route through Newhaven began Spring 2020. See estimated timelines of when work will be finished in this area.
Newhaven is separated into smaller sections of work. These are:
- Newhaven to Melrose Drive
- Melrose Drive to Ocean Terminal
Newhaven to Melrose Drive
Two-way traffic will be reinstated on Lindsay Road in April 2022. As part of this, the eastbound running lane from Sandpiper Road on to Melrose Drive heading east to the junction at North Leith Sands will close to traffic.
Melrose Drive to Ocean Terminal
Construction works in this section started in February 2022 and are are scheduled to be completed by Autumn 2022. Pedestrian access will be maintained in the area, although may change at times throughout the phasing of works.
Works also continue on Ocean Drive, on the east side at Ocean Terminal, which are scheduled to be completed by Summer 2022. Ocean Terminal will remain open as usual and access to the car parks will be maintained. Read more about these works.
To accommodate works the traffic management arrangements are in place on both Lindsay Road and Melrose Drive. Local diversions for pedestrians and motorists are signposted.
