Borders RailwayAfter winning a national tender to deliver an inward investment strategy for the Scottish Borders Railway, the project is now complete and the line was officially opened by the Queen on the 9th of September, the day that she became the country’s longest-reigning monarch.

The Borders Railway is the longest new domestic railway to open in the UK for over a hundred years with 7 new stations and 30 miles of new track, it will connect Edinburgh with Tweedbank and will be a catalyst for growth and development in the region.

It will improve links to the rest of Scotland and the UK’s rail network – and make other transport hubs such as airports easier to reach. It will mean the region is commutable for its residents and open it up to millions of potential visitors.

This is a once-in-a-generation undertaking and will transform the region. Operational services started running on the new railway in September 2015 and with them, a bright new chapter in the history of The Borders and Midlothian will begin.
