Passengers at Waverley Station are set to benefit from a revamped information system, which will almost double the number of departure display boards. Work starts today to upgrade the main departure display screens at Waverley from eight panels to 13, plus a subsequent departures summary board. Temporary information boards, posters and members of staff will keep passengers informed while the main boards are being replaced. Station manager, Juliet Donnachie said: “It’s great news for the thousands of passengers who pass through the station every day, as these additional boards allow us to increase and improve train service information provision very significantly.   I’m delighted that the customer information systems are being enhanced as it goes hand in hand with the wider modernisation of Waverley.”

We own, operate and develop Britain's railway infrastructure; that's 20,000 miles of track, 30,000 bridges, tunnels and viaducts and the thousands of signals, level crossings and stations. We run 20 of the UK's largest stations while all the others, over 2,500, are run by the country's train operating companies.

Usually, there are almost five million journeys made in the UK and over 600 freight trains run on the network. People depend on Britain's railway for their daily commute, to visit friends and loved ones and to get them home safe every day. Our role is to deliver a safe and reliable railway, so we carefully manage and deliver thousands of projects every year that form part of the multi-billion pound Railway Upgrade Plan, to grow and expand the nation's railway network to respond to the tremendous growth and demand the railway has experienced - a doubling of passenger journeys over the past 20 years.
