SCRCA structure 236420: Bridge SAC/6A Settle Station footbridge (passengers only)

SCRCA Location Introduction

The footbridge currently located at Settle Station was originally installed on the station at Prestonpans (a small village in the county of East Lothian, Scotland, approximately 9 miles east of Edinburgh). When the bridge became redundant due to the electrification of the East Coast Main Line, it was carefully dismantled and stored in the rail yard at Millerhill (on the southern outskirts of Ednburgh). In the spring of 1993, it was installed at Settle station as part of the project to raise the height of the platforms and install period lighting.
