Hyslop Welcomes Report of Strong Case for Railway Station in Winchburgh
Friday, 3rd February
Local MSP, Fiona Hyslop has welcomed the report that Network Rail, which is delivering the Edinburgh – Glasgow
Improvement Programme (EGIP), has indicated that a proposed site of a new station at Winchburgh would have a clear business case that could make them attractive.
Reports in the Glasgow Herald on February 2nd indicated that of all the 12 new stations that are being campaigned for, the Winchburgh site is only one of two that may be a possibility.
“I am very pleased that Network Rail has recognised that there is a case for a railway station in Winchburgh.
“It will be dependent on the progress of the Winchburgh Development now that this positive response has come to light I will continue to campaign in favour of a station in Winchburgh.”
