S5W-02370: Daniel Johnson (Edinburgh Southern)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 7 September 2016

To ask the Scottish Government what (a) its and (b) the overall costs were for each new or reinstated train station since 2007, broken down by the number of platforms.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 15 September 2016

Since 2007, a total of 13 new stations have been added to the rail network. Some stations were constructed on the operational railway whilst others were built as part of larger rail projects re-establishing former railway lines and, accordingly, with differing circumstances there is a variation in construction costs. The table below provides the costs for each station, in outturn prices, and the number of platforms.
