WORK on a second platform and footbridge at Dunbar Railway Station will get under way this year. The £15 million scheme, funded by Transport Scotland, is due to start in the spring and will see a second platform at the busy station in operation for the first time in decades. Network Rail has appointed Amco as the main contractor. The two platforms would be linked by a footbridge, with lifts at either side for disabled access. However, there will not be pedestrian access directly from the south side to the platform, although it is something East Lothian Council is keen to introduce.
