Audit Scotland called in to assess Edinburgh travel project

Edinburgh tram and airport rail link projects under scrutiny

The Edinburgh tram
and airport rail link projects
are to be scrutinised by
Audit Scotland, following a
request by government ministers.

They have asked the public sector auditor to look at the cost projections for
the projects before making a final decision on whether to proceed or cancel by
the end of this month.

Finance secretary, John
Swinney
invited Robert Black to conduct a brief overview, looking at ‘the
process used to assess costs and risks to delivery’ as well as the approach, the
methodology and the scope of the assessment used to identify costs’, The
Scotsman
reported.

The Edinburgh Airport Rail Link is a £650m project. The Audit Scotland report
will be completed by 20 June.
