The Station. 

Network Rail, who have just taken back management of Guildford Station, have annouced: 

The Edinburgh Waverley Masterplan will consider the future growth anticipated at the station, the impact of city centre developments on how people use it and how it can play its part in the continued success of Scotland’s capital city.  The Masterplan is being led in partnership by station owner Network Rail and City of Edinburgh Council who have formed a group comprising Transport Scotland, VisitScotland, Scottish Enterprise, Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce and other neighbouring property owners.

Why hope Network Rail will take a similar positive engaged approach to to the study of the station being promoted by Guildford Council; and will produce sensible plans for the whole site that creates the transport facilities Guildford requires.
