As part of the station’s redevelopment, Balfour Beatty will carry out enabling works ahead of platform 1 being lengthened to accommodate four-carriage trains.

To enable the platform extension, a staff accommodation block currently located on platforms 1 and 2 needs to be demolished and facilities relocated.

The facilities within this block will be relocated to a new staff building to allow the demolition. Balfour Beatty will build a new staff building on the North Hanover Street side of the station in April, with completion due in spring 2018.

The work is part of the Edinburgh-Glasgow Improvement Programme (EGIP), delivering a rolling programme of rail electrification across the central belt. So far, EGIP has completed the £80m electrification of the Cumbernauld line, the £25m redevelopment of Edinburgh’s Haymarket station and the £41m Edinburgh Gateway train-tram interchange.
