About the Borders Railway Project

Borders Railway

The Borders Railway Project aims to rebuild passenger train services from Edinburgh through Midlothian to Tweedbank in the Scottish Borders.

Network Rail, which is delivering the scheme, has set up a dedicated enquiry line:

  • 0845 604 4146

The project includes:

  • 35 miles (49km) of new passenger railway
  • 7 new train stations
  • Journey time between Edinburgh Waverley and Tweedbank of 55minutes (or less)
  • 7 day service, half hourly at peak times

Stations in Midlothian

  • Shawfair Station will serve the planned settlement of Shawfair between Danderhall and Millerhill
  • Eskbank Station will be between the TESCO Eskbank superstore, Jewel and Esk College, and close to the new Community Hospital
  • Newtongrange Station will be just off the A7 north of the Scottish Mining Museum but south of the turn-off to Orchard Grange
  • Gorebridge Station will be on Station Road between Main Street and Lady Brae
