Q: IF there is a problem then it's because of the traffic not the tram, so why attack the tram?
#Because it is the tram that is displacing the traffic into unsuitable, narrower, twisty residential roads.
It is possible to have 'The Tram' and NOT do this, but for some reason the Council remain committed to a policy of 'no changes to the project.' when very practical changes could make a big difference.
Traffic is a problem for all towns and cities across Europe but only in Edinburgh is a major public transport project being pushed through where the effects of the displaced traffic are being totally ignored, and where they are actively making the problem worse. You cannot make a bad project 'good' by simply ignoring the bits you don't like.
