    Princes Street

    It has just been on the BBC news, that Princes Street is too close completely to traffic for at least 6 months next year, to allow the tram lines to be laid

    All the traffic will be decanted along Queen Street



    I can see a lot more traffic problems arising soon

    I assume as always it is outwith tourist season meaning it is only residents who pay their council tax that will suffer the most? Thank God i am moving out of Edinburgh in a couple years time as the city is becoming a joke for residents to live in with the usual pre April budget phantom repairs to roads that are not that bad anyway.

    What road repairs? The roads throughout Edinburgh are a total disgrace and are never repaired!

    What you are referring to are traffic calming measures, an Orwellian phrase for road humps, street blocking, road narrowing and any other **** intended to make the driver's life a misery.
