January 31 2014
Preparatory work on railway tunnels beneath the four-acre site is now underway and is expected to take a year to complete and will run in tandem with an archaeological dig on the site of an existing car park.
Interserve development director, David Westwater, said: “This agreement with Network Rail to start work on the site represents a significant milestone for one of Edinburgh’s last remaining gap sites.
“We are looking forward to completing the underground works during 2014, allowing for above-ground construction to start in early 2015.
Commissioned by Interserve and Tiger Developments the first phase of the Richard Murphy designed scheme is scheduled to complete in 2016.
