Benefits

The proposed rail transfer station is intended to play an important role in providing sustainable waste management for Edinburgh and the surrounding areas.  

It can be expected to deliver the following benefits

  • Fewer lorries on the roads and reduced emissions from road transport.  The proposed facility would reduce carbon emissions by 42 per cent, which is equivalent to 116 tonnes a year
  • A saving of 140 additional vehicle movements if waste which is currently transported by rail from Edinburgh to Oxwellmains near Dunbar has to be transferred to road.
  • Investment of £7 million in sustainable waste management for Edinburgh and the surrounding area.
  • Regeneration of an under-utilised site.
  • Creation of up to 25 new, long term jobs at the rail transfer station.
