Edinburgh Park

Station

The Gyle Business Park

The Gyle Business Park is in the western suburbs of Edinburgh, close to the City Bypass and Edinburgh Airport.

Already, 20,000 jobs have been created at the Gyle Business Park.  The number is expected to rise to 30,000 by the year 2020.

[Transport Initiatives Edinburgh comment  8 October 2003]

Edinburgh Park Station

A new station, Edinburgh Park, is being built to support the new Gyle Business Park.

It was proposed, last year, that this station would be opened in June 2003, but the project has been delayed.  The station is now [May 03] due to open on 10 October 2003.

[Edinburgh Evening News  19 March 2003, pp.1,7]

Opening -  October 2003?

The opening of the station is still [Sep 2003] on schedule to open in October 2003.  The bridge has now been hoisted into position.

[Edinburgh Evening News:  15 September 2003, p.9  -  This article includes a photograph of the station bridge.]

Opening -  November 2003?

The station is now [Oct 2003] expected to be opened by late November 2003.

[Comment from Transport Initiatives Edinburgh: 8 October 2003.]

Opening -  December 2003?

New Edinburgh Ltd (the Edinburgh City Council / Miller Developments joint-venture company) has confirmed that the opening of 4.5m Edinburgh Park station has been delayed from 24 November to "some time in December".

[Edinburgh Evening News:  31 October 2003, p.5.]

Opened -  December 2003

Services from the station commenced on 4 December.  The station will be formally opened on 8 December by First Minister, Jack McConnell.

Services will run:

-  every 15 minutes to Edinburgh Waverley and Haymarket,

-  every 30 minutes to Bathgate, Dunblane and Newcraighall.

[Edinburgh Evening News:  4 December 2003, p.21.]

Through Trains to Glasgow planned  -   March 2004

Following initial criticism, when the station opened, that it did not serve the main Edinburgh-Glasgow line, it  was announced in March 2004 that the next franchise of this route is expected to require that its trains stop at Edinburgh Park, beginning October 2004.

Services will run:

-  every 15 minutes to Edinburgh Waverley and Haymarket,

-  every 30 minutes to Bathgate, Dunblane and Newcraighall.

[Edinburgh Evening News:  17 March 2004, p.9.]

Through Trains to Glasgow planned  -   March 2004

The Edinburgh-Glasgow trains are still not stopping at Edinburgh Park station.  Edinburgh Council has been pressing hard for these trains to stop at Edinburgh Park, but Civil Servants and the Scottish Executive are believed to less keen on the idea as it would lengthen journey times between Edinburgh and Glasgow.

[Edinburgh Evening News:  December 1, 2005,  p.17.]
