Since the Haymarket Interchange Feasibility Study was commissioned in December 2005, the project team have been investigating ways in which the objectives of the Haymarket Interchange Feasibility Study can be met. Stage 1 of the study brought forward 12 options for the area ranging from small scale refurbishment of the station, through to enhancement and expansion of all public transport facilities to the comprehensive redevelopment of the interchange and the wider area. These were short listed to six options in Stage 2 of the study, and have been subject to feasibility investigations, further refinement and more detailed development in Stage 3.
The results of this investigation were presented in May 2007 as three options for the proposed development of the Haymarket area forming part of a public consultation held in May and June. During consultation, the public and other stakeholders provided feedback on the project and the three options.
The feedback we received, along with a technical and financial assessment undertaken in Stage 3 resulted in Option A being selected as the 'preferred option' to be taken forward.
Through continual refinement and further development in Stage 5, the design of the preferred option has evolved to become the Haymarket Interchange Proposal. The HIFS Study is now complete.
While the Haymarket Interchange Feasibility Study has been set up to investigate the redevelopment of Haymarket Station and the surrounding area, there are going to be a number of transport changes and improvements in the area outwith this study. .
