Project facts & Tasks

Why?

An improved local stopping service between Edinburgh and Berwick/Newcastle, including stops at the new station will help facilitate growth and address capacity issues in the area and assist regeneration, long term sustainability and accessibility issues.

What will change?

The proposal is to build two platforms, waiting shelters, installing lifts, footbridge and access points.

We are also developing spaces for 126 cars, of which 18 will be electric car charging points.
