Answered by: Humza Yousaf 12 December 2017
There are currently no plans to move Prestonpans Station to Blindwells. The option of a railway station at Blindwells has been proposed by the promoter, East Lothian Council. All proposals submitted to Transport Scotland will be considered subject to the Scottish Government’s investment priorities for the strategic transport network, a robust business case, affordability and other competing proposals.
