Land acquisition to start for revived Scottish rail route

The land acquisition process for construction and operation of the Waverley Rail Project will begin next month. The project is an initiative to re-establish a rail link from Edinburgh to the central Borders area at Tweedbank in Scotland.
Survey work on the 55km route is already underway. The railway will create an opportunity to construct new affordable housing and combat the overheated Edinburgh residential property market, Scottish Borders Council hopes. Meanwhile redevelopment of Waverley station itself by Network Rail enters the final stage next week.
