Borders Railway to be considered in Scottish Borders transport study

Extending the Borders railway will be one of the options considered by a new study looking at improving transport provision in the south of Scotland across all modes including road, rail and public transport.

Transport Scotland today announced the intention to award the contract to Jacobs UK Ltd. Subject to completion of the mandatory standstill period, the study will start later this month and is expected to take around seven months to complete.

The findings will help inform the forthcoming refresh of the Scottish Government’s Strategic Transport Projects Review (STPR) which will look at future transport proposals for the whole of Scotland, including the Scottish Borders.
