Outline costs revealed for Beattock, Thornhill and Eastriggs

The outline costs and challenges for the proposed railway stations at Beattock, Thornhill and Eastriggs have been revealed in papers to a board meeting of SWestrans. Beattock would cost around £14-15m, with new services required to serve the railway station.

Thornhill and Eastriggs are expected to cost £8-11m but a timetable recast affecting a number of services would be required to support a stop at this station unless changes are made to rail services on the route such as new trains, timetable padding removal or line speed increases.
