Rail project at Edinburgh Gateway Station

Appointed by Balfour Beatty, Annandale Design is delighted to have started work at Edinburgh Gateway Station at Gogar in Edinburgh, Scotland. The under construction station and interchange is to be served by Abellio ScotRail and Edinburgh Trams and is scheduled to open by December 2016.


Annandale Design will be designing, manufacturing and installing numerous bespoke stainless steel and glass barriers and balustrades to all circulation stairs and public areas of the station.

This appointment comes after Annandale Design successfully completed the contract to supply the architectural metalwork package for the major upgrades to Haymarket Station, which was designed to transform the capacity of the station into a key transport hub linking the city’s airport and the new tramline.

The extensive project was later awarded Best Civil Engineering Project at the 2015 Saltire Civil Engineering Awards. The project saw off competition from the Borders Railway, Ullapool Harbour, Hampden Park and a River Ness flood alleviation scheme – each of which received a commendation.
