The latest phase on the construction of the £350 million new Borders railway is underway.
Pathways in Galashiels have been demolished as work continues on the Waverly Line between Edinburgh and Tweedbank.
Once finished the line will include 30 miles of new railway with ten stops and seven new stations.
The original line was closed in 1969 under the Beeching cuts.
The existing public toilet block will be demolished and a three storey building constructed to replace the property which was lost over half a century ago.
Councillor Ron Smith, Executive Member for Planning and Environment, said:
The new development will provide public toilets as well as bus shelters. A digital Tourist Information Point will be installed near Woodmarket.
It is anticipated that the project will start in May and will take around 40 weeks to complete.
