Street Closed to Traffic
Princes Street between
the Scott Monument and the West End was closed to traffic in Autumn 2011
to allow the lines for Edinburgh's new trams to be re-laid. The
first attempt to lay these lines was not successful.
The re-laying of these
lines will resume after the Christmas and New Year Holiday, but for the
present festive period, Christmas and New Year, Princes Street has been
opened again to pedestrians - but not to traffic, apart from Santa's
train, seen above.
