A kind Australian has composed the above video to show Edinburghers what their city may just look like in around 5 to 10 years' time. Possibly nearer 10.
Meanwhile, back on the tracks - should there be any visible - Audit Scotland has begun an official investigation into the Capital's tram project after claims that it has been financially mismanaged. The report will be issued early next year following a request from Robert Black, the Auditor General for Scotland.
A spokeswoman for Audit Scotland said:
"The auditors of the City of Edinburgh Council and Transport Scotland have been monitoring the project and its associated risks as part of their ongoing audits. This report will draw on their findings.
"It is expected to be an interim report which will draw on the progress of the project to date, governance arrangements and the kind of issues which will need to be managed as the project moves forward."
What good will an interim report do? It's been obvious to anyone with any sense that this project is a total mess. Overspent, mismanaged and even worse there seems to be serious doubt that any tram will ever run beyond the city centre.
What is needed is an inquiry which can dig out those responsible for this fiasco, name them and ensure they are publicly accountable for their actions.
Deja vu anyone?
