A brief visit to central Edinburgh's Princes Street

Edinburgh's controversial tramway now appears to be catching on with the public although the inquest as to what went wrong in the delivery of the system continues in the hands of a public scrutineer. Thoughts are now being turned to extensions, including the original plan to reach Leith and Newhaven. Princes Street, despite the banning of cars over most of its length, remains a busy and for much of the day a chaotic thoroughfare with innumerable buses jostling for position at the many bus stops along the prestigious boulevard.  In this view, looking westwards from the main Princes Street tram stop,there is a welcome break from the worst of the non-tram traffic, although one bus lies closely alongside the nearside flank of the tram.
