Edinburgh Photo: a fantastic Edinburgh Photograph Featuring Future tramstop location - Picardy Place, Edinburgh

Since it was created at the end of the 1960s - as part of the city’s plans for an inner ring road - following the demolition of a triangle of shops and tenements, the Picardy Place junction has been reshaped more than once. The latest incarnation, in conjunction with changes to Leith Street, aims to improve traffic flow and allow better options for pedestrians and cyclists. The newly shaped traffic island will also be home to the future Picardy Place tramstop once the Trams to Newhaven project is completed. This view looks west towards York Place, where the existing city centre tram terminus is just to the left of St. Paul’s and St. George’s Church (the elaborate church on the right). The single platform York Place tramstop will be removed and the new tracks to Leith and Newhaven will come forward through the traffic island roughly where the green vehicle is seen in the picture. A new two side platform Picardy Place tramstop will eventually be built here. The tramway infrastructure is due to be installed here between Spring 2021 and Spring 2022 with the extension due to open to Newhaven in Spring 2023.View image on Flickr
