£4m Shawfair infrastructure project proceeds
Buccleuch Property and Mactaggart & Mickel are to press ahead with infrastructure works at the largest urban expansion project in Edinburgh and Midlothian after signing a £4m contract with Crummock.

This work will include the delivery of new roads, street lighting, footpaths and cycle-routes following a decision by Bellway and Miller Homes to build more than 350 new homes in the Shawfair district, with work commencing this summer.

Shawfair director Nick Waugh said: “The creation of new footpaths and cycle routes will significantly improve the linkages throughout Shawfair, making this already well-connected site even better, whilst encouraging active travel that is central to our carefully considered masterplan approach.”

Upon completion in two decades time Shawfair will play host to some 4,000 homes, schools, business space and amenities clustered around a new railway station on the Borders line.
