E-ROUTE TO SMOOTHER STREETS?

 COMMUNITY APP TO FIX ROADS 

Cyclists and motorists could soon enjoy smoother journeys across Edinburgh thanks to a bespoke pothole-repair app going live tomorrow. 

UberHole is the brainchild of Broughton-based entrepreneur Bernard Dintman, who spots a gap in the market now that cash-strapped councils struggle to maintain roads across Scotland to acceptable standards.

BIDDERS NAMED FOR TRAM CONTRACT

A significant milestone has been reached in drawing up the Final Business Case which councillors will use to decide whether or not to extend the tramway to Newhaven. 

Four bidders (three of them joint ventures) have emerged from a ‘robust evaluation’ process and will now tender in mid-April for the Infrastructure and Systems contract to design and build the track, overhead line, stops, systems and road infrastructure and public realm.

The tendering process will last until late summer, and a decision on the Business Case will be taken in the autumn.

PICARDY PLACE – HAVE YOUR SAY!

Today, the Picardy Place consultation continues upstairs at 11 Multrees Walk from 10am to 4pm. We urge everyone to attend. 

For those unable to make it, the display boards are supposed to be online at togetherforedinburgh.com early next week. 

We’ve photographed some of the most relevant ones already, and will replace them with clearer images if and when they become available.
