CableCom Electrical worked alongside Siemens Mobility and main contractors Sacryr, Farrans and Neopul, to provide full electrical and mechanical ventilation to 2No. tram substations which contribute to connecting Leith and Newhaven to the end of the current line at York Place. The new double track line will include eight stops, with two substations providing the traction power for the whole route extension.
The project’s completion in 2023 has further improved accessibility in Edinburgh between Newhaven, the city centre, and the airport, making it even easier for people to travel using a low-carbon mode of transport. It will also contribute to improved air quality, increasing the opportunities for people to access more parts of the city without travelling by car, more easily.
Transport and Environment Convener, Councillor Lesley Macinnes, said: “This major project will bring significant benefits to the city, providing sustainable, efficient transport and opening the area up for economic development. We look forward to seeing Siemens Mobility deliver essential components of the infrastructure.”
