The Scottish Executive has offered financial assistance to City of Edinburgh Council for further modelling work into passenger demand for heavy rail and light rail options on the Edinburgh South Suburban Railway route. This forms part of a wider funding package, totalling £6.555 million under the Integrated Transport Fund, for the development of light rail in the city. Any decisions we make on supporting the re-opening of a passenger route will of course be taken in light of the findings of the further modelling work.
