Tram Funding gap?

More speculation in the Scotsman this morning about the potential tram funding gap - see here ...

... the 'real' difficulty won't be whether the Scottish Government (via Transport Scotland) re-instate that last payment of £72million: it will be whether the projected cost for completion to St. Andrew Square can be met: currently at some £776million?

Given recent history, I suspect the final figure could be much higher ... especially when you double-check the wording of paragraph 3.14 of August's Council Report: here :-(
