Logistic Hubs and Waiting Area Provision

To support local businesses and residents who may affected by the works, SFN implemented logistic hub provisions and waiting areas throughout the route to support those who are affected by the works. This has been well received by the local community and the project continued to receive compliments about such provisions and the way in which the local community is supported.

A fundamental part to ensuring that they delivered a robust and tailored support to local traders and residents was that a provision was developed in consultation with the community prior to works commencing, as well as clear and concise planning and communication on the requirements when accessing, also as part of the projects social value and CCS commitments they targeted the recruitment of local people in the roles of the logistic hubs. This has really helped develop and maintain localised relationships within the local community.

They now have this provision being analysed by other local authorities in England, colleagues within the City of Edinburgh council and businesses like Coca Cola Company who are keen to learn from what they have developed locally. As well as supporting the local community during construction they aim to leave a lasting legacy once the trams project is operational.
