MORE than a quarter of the parking spaces at Dunbar Railway Station will be unavailable until November.

The change to the car park layout is part of the work to create a second platform at the railway station.

Currently, the car park has 76 car parking spaces but that number will drop to 55 from Monday until November 11.

Twenty-one spaces will be temporarily removed, with spaces at the far end of the car park remaining open and pedestrians still able to access that area.

A spokesman for ScotRail said: “While this work takes place, we appreciate that some adjustment to travel plans may be required.

“We are encouraging people to consider whether they could use alternative stations or car parks, get dropped off instead of driving themselves, cycle or catch a bus to the station.”

The car park is the only one at a railway station in East Lothian where people have to pay to park.

The £13 million scheme to deliver a new 271-metre second platform is due to be complete by the end of November.
