Waverley Station roof finally uncovered
January 16 2013ongoing £130m upgrade of the fifth busiest station outside London.
This is seeing 34,000sq/m of strengthened, clear glass roof panels fitted to the original Victorian ironwork frame of the station to allow more natural light to flood into the interior.
Internal spaces are also to be de-cluttered through removal of unused furniture, buildings and high-level walkways.
Network Rail has already improved access to the station through installation of a new covered entranceway at the Waverley Steps and a Stannah designed passenger lift.
The new-look station is scheduled to be fully complete by June 2014.
