Edinburgh Park railway station is a railway station in the west of Edinburgh, Scotland, serving the Edinburgh Park business park and the Hermiston Gait shopping centre. The station opened in December 2003 and is the first intermediate station between Haymarket and Linlithgow since 1951. Ticket Barriers came into use on 25 March 2015
There are two platforms, linked by a covered footbridge, which is accessible by either stairs or a lift. There is also a pedestrian underpass just outside the station, accessible from both platforms. Tickets are available from one of the two ticket machines.
The railway through Edinburgh Park station was electrified (using overhead wires at 25 kV) in October 2010 as part of the Airdrie-Bathgate Rail Link project.
The Edinburgh Park tram stop (and the entire tram line) opened on 31 May 2014, the station then becoming a fully staffed rail/tram interchange. The tram stop is adjacent to the southern exit of the railway station.
The first tram (under test and without passengers) called at the stop on 8 October 2013.
Edinburgh to Dunblane, Glasgow Queen Street, Milngavie and Helensburgh Central services call at the station, providing eight trains an hour to Edinburgh city centre, two to Stirling, two to Glasgow Queen Street High Level via Falkirk Grahamston & Cumbernauld, and four to Glasgow Queen Street Low Level via Bathgate. The Milngavie and Glasgow Queen Street via Falkirk Grahamston do not run in the evenings or on Sundays, while the Dunblane services are hourly on a Sunday.
Trains on the E&GR main line to Queen Street H.L via Falkirk High do not stop here and passengers wishing to travel to stations between Falkirk & Queen St H.L must change at Polmont during evenings and Sundays.
