Looking north from Broughton Road on 22 June 2019 over the one time platform of Powderhall station, latterly the loading pad for Edinburgh Council^s Powderhall refuse depot. Operations at the depot ceased in 2016 and the land is currently earmarked for new housing development. For the same view in operational days [see image 11948].

Main entrance to Powderhall depot from Broughton Road, looking north on a bright and sunny 22 June 2019. Demolition work and decontamination of the site, previously used for refuse processing, incineration and containerised disposal of compacted waste by rail, is now almost complete. (The sign beyond the gate on the right still reads Powderhall Waste Transfer Station). Note the original 1893 building, once known as The Destructor (part of which can be seen on the right) is to be retained and converted for use as ^flexible workspace and community space^.

While the majority of the land released following closure of Powderhall depot is to be used for housing, the original 1893 building, which once incorporated incineration facilities and stables, is to be retained. The 1893 Scots Baronial style structure, seen looking west along Broughton Road on 22 June 2019, is to be adapted for use as community and work space. Note the posters on the right for the forthcoming Jazz and Film Festivals covering the former entrance to Powderhall station.
