ASH carried out environmental assessment to identify the likely effects of Edinburgh Tram routes
ASH was commissioned as Landscape Architects by Engineers FaberMaunsell on behalf of Transport for Edinburgh to investigate and assess Tram Routes 2 and 3 as part of a larger network of tram routes throughout the City of Edinburgh.
A number of alternatives were considered and included analysis of a wide number of factors including engineering feasibility, traffic and transport considerations, safety, environmental effects, transport and planning policy, economics, accessibility, and the extent to which the scheme integrates with other transport infrastructure.
