In January 2015 Network Rail agreed to develop proposals for a new station in East Linton with the objective of providing a new two-platform station on the East Coast Main Line.
Project facts & Tasks
New stations are an important part of improving local transport networks, stimulating economic development and opening up social, cultural, education, employment and leisure opportunities for people.
Providing a train service to Edinburgh and Berwick/Newcastle from a new station will help facilitate growth, assist regeneration and provide, long term sustainability for a local community.
What will change?
We have proposed a new fully accessible station that will serve the local area. It will provide direct access to communities on both sides of the railway via active travel - walking/cycling paths - and offer step free access across the railway via a footbridge with lifts.
