Following public exhibitions in the station in October 2008, Network Rail made an application for permission to rebuild Waverley Steps under the Transport and Works (Scotland) Act 2007 (a ‘TAWS Order’) and we aim to start building these new facilities in the autumn.
The proposed redevelopment features:
- a modern, landmark entrance from Princes Street
- two sets of covered escalators, maintaining access to Princes Mall shopping centre
- two 16-person glass lifts giving step-free access to all platforms via a mezzanine bridge
- a glass and steel canopy over the newly refurbished Waverley Steps
