Dunbar Station upgrade cleared for summer start
December 13 2018
Network Rail has given the go-ahead to a £13m package of improvements at Dunbar Station, including the creation of a second platform and a step-free footbridge.
The improvements will increase capacity by allowing a new class of ten carriage trains to stop and offers scope for increased flexibility along the East Coast mainline.
Matthew Spence, Network Rail route delivery director for Scotland, commented: “The new platform, which will be fully accessible, will mean extra capacity at Dunbar and create opportunities for more services to stop in the future.”
Lift towers for the new overbridge will be clad in red or blonde sandstone in an effort to remain sympathetic to the historic town.
Graphics for the project were prepared by IDP Architects with Amco expected to begin engineering works in the summer for completion by early 2020.
