Stevenson Encourages Constituents To Help Shape Future Of Scotland's Rail Services

Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has encouraged residents of Banffshire & Buchan Coast to take part in Transport Scotland’s Rail2014 consultation which launched today (Tuesday).

The consultation offers the chance for ordinary people to shape the future of the rail network in Scotland following the current funding arrangements for Network Rail in Scotland and the current ScotRail franchise coming to an end in 2014.

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“Even though it is of course true that Banffshire & Buchan Coast has no stations and only the smallest stretch of track within the constituency, that does not make the views of local residents any less important.

“Many people may wish to make their views on rail services in the rest of the country known or perhaps call for changes to the rail network that would make it more readily possible for people in the constituency to use the railway as part of their journeys. This consultation gives them the chance to do that.

“This is an important opportunity to make your views on the future shape of the railways in Scotland known and I hope that many people in Banffshire & Buchan Coast will take the time to complete the consultation.”
