The long running dispute between Edinburgh City Council, Transport Scotland and the contractors responsible for the new tram system in the city centre may have moved a step towards a conclusion following a meeting between all interested parties.

All sides have reached a mutual agreement on the key issues holding up the project.

In a joint statement issued yesterday, the parties announced that after intense discussions regarding this matter, all sides have at last agreed on the main problems.

These problems include:

- Enormous big holes in much of Princes Street which show no sign of being filled in or otherwise being rectified .

- Absolute traffic chaos in the middle of Edinburgh caused directly by the existence of said holes in the road.

After "a fruitful and dynamic meeting", all parties are confident that the next session can produce an understanding that the said holes should be filled in.

Make grimbo's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
