Scottish Borders Council leader David Parker has welcomed the news that ScotRail is to have toilets and a kiosk built at the line’s Tweedbank terminus early next year.
He said: “I am delighted that users of Tweedbank station will be able to access these new facilities.
“One common issue raised with me since the opening of the railway has been the lack of toilet facilities at Tweedbank.
“These concerns have been considered, and having this new facility as well as a kiosk to serve refreshments from early next year will be welcomed by passengers boarding or leaving the train.
“Funding for this project has come from ScotRail and the Borders Railway Blueprint Group.”
Cathy Craig, commercial director at ScotRail, added: “We will continue to work closely with the local community to ensure that services and facilities in the Borders meet the needs of people, businesses and visitors to the area.”
