Outline costs revealed for Beattock, Thornhill and Eastriggs

Posted by

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.
