Designs for a new entrance and covered walkway at Edinburgh Waverley station have been revealed as part of a £150M extension. The £6.6M entrance will be a glass canopy supported by 'steel trees' covering stairs and escalators. Work is expected to start on site next January and will form the first phase of a project that also involves reinstating a 56km railway line between Waverley and Tweedbank, just south of the town of Galashiels on the Scottish borders. Capacity at Waverley station will also be increased from 24 to 28 trains an hour.
