Dunkeld and Birnam Station

From feedback gathered through the A9 Co-Creative Process and public consultation, reconnecting the railway station with Station Road and improving accessibility, are very important to the community.

The Preferred Route provides car parking facilities at the top of Station Road, with access to the railway station via a pedestrian underpass. The underpass design can be further developed to capture as much natural light as possible, providing a welcoming entrance to the railway station. The angle and position of the underpass and entrance can also be developed to align and integrate with Station Road and the Category A listed building Dunkeld & Birnam Railway Station, with views of the entrance on approach from Station Road. A lift will also be included within the underpass to improve platform accessibility. Station proposals will continue to develop, in consultation with key stakeholders, including Network Rail and the community, as part of the next stage of assessment.
