Midlothian rail on track

CREATION of a new railway line serving Midlothian is to be progressed by a new partnership.

Transport Scotland and Network Rail will work together to deliver the multi-million pound Waverley Rail Project, which will have stations at Shawfair, Eskbank, Newtongrange and Gorebridge.

But Transport Scotland has had to cancel the original procurement competition for the project following the withdrawal of two of the three bidders.
