Workers off trams scheme.

ALMOST all the staff at Edinburgh's beleaguered tram firm have applied for voluntary redundancy, amid fears about the future of the project.

Around 50 staff at TIE have volunteered to go out of a total workforce of between 65 and 70.

Last month, it was reported that TIE planned to make half the workforce redundant in a bid to cut costs.

TIE lost a number of high-profile staff in recent weeks, including chief executive Richard Jeffrey and director of communications Mandy Haeburn-Little.

Last week, city councillors agreed that the crisis-hit project should be completed at a cost of pounds 770million after it was found that the cost of scrapping it would be pounds 750million.
