trams in Edinburgh

By Graeme McLarty

Edinburgh’s controversial tram project is to face a full inquiry by audit Scotland following claims that it has been financially mismanaged.

The report into the mismanagement of the £600 million project is being prepared for release early next year.  It is expected to look into the fact that transport Scotland have continued to fund the project despite knowing that it was massively over budget. They are also accused of not properly monitoring or looking into what the money was actually being spent on.
