New East Coast Mainline service recommended for Scotland

An independent study for Transport Scotland has recommended the creation of a new semi-fast rail service between Edinburgh and Newcastle.

Transport consultant MVA Consultancy undertook a study on improving services between Newcastle and Edinburgh on the East Coast Mainline for rail operator ScotRail on behalf of Transport Scotland.

Other recommendations in the report include improving services to Dunbar and opening new stations at East Linton and Reston.

Scottish transport minister Keith Brown said the findings will help develop transport options for communities in the south-east of Scotland.
