Borders Line design

Network Rail has appointed BAM Nuttall to assist in the delivery of the Borders Railway as the project moves another step closer to delivery.
The contract allows Network Rail to continue design and advance works on behalf of Transport Scotland prior to taking on a full project delivery role. The £2 million contract enables BAM Nuttall to further develop designs of the railway route, including bridges, tunnels and stations. Network Rail will also proceed with ground stabilisation works in the Midlothian section of the route where remediation of former mine works is required.
The Borders Railway will reconnect the heart of the Scottish Borders to the railway network for the first time in over 40 years. Travelling through Midlothian, the project will see seven new stations delivered along the 35 mile route – four in Midlothian and three in the Scottish Borders.
