A tram heading for Edinburgh Airport runs west through the site of the under construction Edinburgh Gateway station on 7 June 2016. The bridge linking the rail and tram sides of the interchange has recently been installed. Edinburgh Gateway is scheduled to become operational by the end of 2016

Overview of the site on Sunday 05/06/2016 looking northeast. The tram stop will be at the bottom left, at quite an angle to, and different height from, the rail platforms at the back. Presumably the seemingly dozens of roadsigns pointing to South Gyle station from this area will be removed in favour of signs for Gateway. After all South Gyle is not not an interchange or park and ride and doesn't even have much of a car park!
