Borders Railway: No Change Required
Whilst speaking to residents at our community drop-ins held across Midlothian and the Borders, it became clear that many potential users of the railway are concerned that their journey from the Borders may not be a direct one, and that they will have to change at Newcraighall station in order to reach Edinburgh Waverley.
This is incorrect; passengers will be able to travel direct from Tweedbank station to Edinburgh Waverley station. Passengers will not be required to change at any station along the route in order to reach Edinburgh and the full journey from Tweedbank to Edinburgh Waverley will take around 55 minutes. Hopefully this provides some clarification and reassurance for residents.
