Scottish Government to evade any criticism for tram fiasco until after elections

Inquiry into £780million tram fiasco could take up to two years, claim critics.

The inquiry into the delays, disruptions and spiralling cost of the Edinburgh tram project could take as long as two years to complete.

Witnesses are unlikely to be called to give evidence to Lord Hardie before the autumn, meaning the final report is not expected to be completed until well into next year.

That means any potential criticism of the role of the Scottish Government is likely to come after May’s Scottish Parliament elections.
