As part of the investment in the infrastructure to the major Shawfair development to the south-east of Edinburgh, Crummock were appointed to undertake repairs to the access road and footpath that leads to Shawfair Station, off the A6106, Millerhill Road.  Works also included upgrading the street lighting and installing and tactile drop crossing.  The Shawfair station serves the Borders Railway line and will be a major transport hub, located in the heart of the Shawfair development.

The development is the largest urban expansion project in Edinburgh and Midlothian, incorporating 4,000 new homes, offices, shops, schools and other community facilities.  The new road will connect the future town centre to the Shawfair station, the third stop on the new Borders Railway line.

James Palmer, Shawfair LLP, said: “The commencement of works on the new road is an important milestone for Shawfair as this will be the main road connecting local residents and businesses to the new Borders Railway at Shawfair station.  It will also allow for a quick commute from the Shawfair station into Edinburgh city and easy access to the borders.  We are pleased to have Crummock on board and look forward to working with them to deliver high quality infrastructure for the residents of Shawfair.”

Crummock director, Alex Jeffrey, stated: “We understand the significance of the Shawfair community development on the local economy and are delighted to have won this first opportunity to work with Shawfair LLP.  We hope to be involved with the development for many years to come and our aim is to provide the highest quality of service that will benefit current and future residents and businesses for years to come.”
