Reston station opening May 2022

14 April 2022/Categories: Industry News, Rail


After a £20 million investment by the Scottish Government, Reston station will be opening in May 2022.

The accessible station at Reston on the East Coast Main Line (ECML) in Berwickshire is an investment by the Scottish Government to improve access to rail services in the Scottish Borders. It will allow connectivity options to local public transport services, active travel provision and 70 park and ride car parking spaces, including over 20 electric vehicle charging stations. 

Construction on the two-platform station commenced early 2021 and the station is nearing completion. On opening, Reston Station will be served by cross border operators including TransPennine Express and LNER services.

The new station will deliver a step-change in terms of public transport accessibility for East Berwickshire communities.

Alex Hynes, Managing Director of Scotland’s Railway, said:

“The opening of Reston Station for services is another fantastic achievement for Scotland’s Railway. This £20million investment delivers a fully accessible station reconnecting Reston and the surrounding communities to the rail network. It provides local people with greater choice to travel by train and use public transport as we seek to make Scotland a greener place to live and work.”

Network Rail has managed the design and construction of the project which delivers step free access with a pedestrian footbridge with lifts connecting the platform.  Following its opening, Reston Station will be managed by ScotRail.

A car park with 70 spaces, over 20 of which have electric charging facilities, and 11 cycle spaces will make it even easier to take public transport.  The car park has the capacity to be expanded in the future as demand requires.
