Description

This is a 14 arch double track viaduct parallel to the Slateford Aqueduct.

Formerly Balerno Junction was to the immediate west and the junctions for lines to Gorgie Cattle Market [CR] and Redford Barracks were to the immediate east. The closed Slateford [2nd] station was even closer to the east end of the viaduct.
