A busy Edinburgh road is to close to cars this weekend as the next part of trams road works gets under way.
York Place will still be open to buses until September when the bus station at St Andrew Square will also shut.
Traffic will be diverted along Queen Street Gardens, Abercromby Place, Albany Street and Broughton Street.
Broughton Street will reopen at 5am on Saturday after utility works up to Cathedral Lane have been completed.
Cllr Lesley Hinds, said: "Following the reopening of Princes Street last weekend, the start of work on the final section of the tram route is another important step forward for the project.
"I am acutely aware of the concerns that local residents and businesses have as to the effect these works will have on traffic in the city centre and we will continue to take their views into consideration.
"The team will consider any measure with the potential to reduce disruption and, as work progresses, our plans will remain under constant review."
