The Reston Station Redevelopment project will also see the building of a two-platform station on the East Coast Mainline and will include car parking with 70 spaces along with a new access road. The station will be fully accessible with the new lifts and footbridge making the connection to both platforms.
The station will see trains calling to the Borders village for the first time in over 50 years.
Lisa McKenna, Network Rail project manager for the Reston station development said: “Installation of the footbridge marks a major milestone for the project’s delivery and we are grateful to the team at Reston for completing this challenging element of the project safely and efficiently.
“The bridge and lifts will help deliver easy local access to East Coast Mainline services and will make this area more attractive for inward investment and housing growth, which will both support local communities and the economy.
“Work will now continue, both on the bridge and the wider station development, which will help open Reston to new opportunities and transform this community.”
Jerry Dickson, Operations Manager, BAM Nuttall, said: “We’re delighted to be underway in creating another brand new station for Scotland’s Railway. BAM has a proud history in delivering new rail infrastructure in the Scottish Borders and we’re looking forward to helping even more of the region to access rail transport.”
