A report by The Scotsman on 19 May claims that the majority of Borderers claim they won't use the Waverley line.
The line, projected to cost almost £300 million will be constructed between 2010 and 2013.
Fifty four per cent of those questioned in the poll by Access, who specialise in public transport surveys, claim that even if train times suited them they would be unlikely to use the line.
Jeremy Purvis, Lib Dem MSP for Tweeddale, Ettrick and Lauderdale claims that many of his constituents opinion of the line has been affected by the delays and questions over funding.
