Transport Scotland to the rescue?

Alex Neil (on behalf of the Scottish Government) has just announced that Transport Scotland are to take a lead in delivering the Tram Project ...

... that'll be the same Scottish Government that removed Transport Scotland from the Tram Project Board back in June 2007 :-(

It really was a catastrophic error - Audit Scotland picked up on it in February of this year, and I blogged about it at the time.

All that said, I do welcome this last-minute intervention and the tacit acknowledgement that it was a mistake to remove Transport Scotland over 4-years ago ... not to mention what this announcement says about the Government's confidence in their Councillor-colleagues, who do - after all - run the Capital City?

Now we need that Public Inquiry.
