The last bridge over the Borders Railway has been installed as part of the construction of the new 30 mile route.

A total of 95 bridges have been refurbished and 42 new bridges constructed on the railway between Edinburgh and the Tweedbank.

This footbridge at Harelaw provides a connection from Newton Village to the new station at Shawfair, south-east of Edinburgh.

The line is due to open in September.
