Network Rail is lengthening platforms at Edinburgh Waverley to enable new trains and ScotRail’s High Speed Trains to serve the station.
Platforms 5 and 6 at the east of the station, and Platform 12 at the west, will be lengthened. Escalators on Platform 11 were due to close on September 2 and re-open early next year when the longer Platform 12 opens.
Network Rail programme director Rodger Querns said: “Completing such a significant piece of engineering work in one of the country’s busiest stations is a big challenge.”
The work is being delivered as part of the Edinburgh Glasgow Improvement Programme (EGIP) and Intercity Express Programme (IEP) schemes.
