Issue Cover

Rail  |  Issue 825  


EXTEND BORDERS: COULD CARLISLE DREAM BECOME A REALITY?
Campaigners have welcomed the announcement of a study that will investigate the reopening of the Borders railway all the way through to Carlisle. Currently the line from Edinburgh terminates at Tweedbank. The section between Newcraighall and Tweedbank reopened in September 2015 after forty six years (RAIL 783), but long before then campaigners had been calling for the railway’s extension to the Cumbrian city. On April 10th, Transport Scotland (Ts) announced that extending the 30½-mile railway a further sixty three miles to Carlisle is one of the options to be considered by a new study looking at improving transport provision in the south of Scotland across all modes
including road, rail and public transport.
