Publication Account (2007)

The Caledonian Railway’s main line into Edinburgh, terminating at the east end of Princes Street in 1848, was closed in the 1960s and redeveloped as the West Approach Road in 1972, which conserved some of the company’s other historic retaining walls and bridges including the Grove Street plate-girder bridge.
