This is the west end of a curve opened from Craiglockhart Junction in 1961 in connection with the development of Millerhill Marshalling Yard.
Slateford station is just to the west.
This is the second junction to have this name, the first was between the Caledonian Railway's main line to Edinburgh Princes Street and the link to Haymarket (the Edinburgh Station and Branches (Caledonian Railway)). The junctions co-existed between 1961 and 1966.
Slateford Junction signal box opened in 1960, also replacing the box for Slateford Junction [1st] and Slateford station signal box.
The new Slateford Junction box closed in 1981, replaced by the Edinburgh Signalling Centre.
