MSP Comments on Rail Link Moves

Commenting on the proposal from Aberdeenshire SNP councillors which has received the backing of other parties to seek a feasibility study on the potential for re-opening the railway line to Ellon and Peterhead, Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson said:

“Clearly, a feasibility study is a very necessary first step to determine whether or not such a move is possible and I’m delighted that the local transport partnership, NESTRANS, are being asked to take this forward.

“Since 2007, we have seen expansion of rail services along the existing lines in the North-east with more services to Glasgow and Edinburgh now starting and terminating at Inverurie, more trains at Portlethen, a new station at Laurencekirk and a proposed station at Kintore. It’s time to see if we can expand the network into some of Aberdeenshire’s largest communities.”
