Members’ views wanted on Network Rail Route Survey

Published 26 January 2016 by Colin Howden

We’re looking for the views of Transform’s members and supporters for our response to Network Rail Scotland’s Route Survey.

NRS are consulting on the plans until 10 March. As this has long-term implications for the railway in Scotland and how it might develop over the next 30 or so years we agreed that it would be best to consult our members for their thoughts and ideas.

We’re welcome ideas on the following topics:

1. Anglo-Scottish routes.
2. Scottish inter-city routes to the north from the Central Belt.
3. Rural routes.
4. The cities, in particular Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee and Aberdeen.
5. Electrification.
6. Major stations and how they might develop.
7. Alternative solutions such as trams and tram-trains.
8. Lines and stations that might be re-opened and possible new lines.
9. Any additional thoughts and ideas.

Please fire any suggestions you may have directly to our rail campaigner Paul Tetlaw at paul.tetlaw [AT]

Paul is keen to get writing very soon — so please get your views in to him as soon as possible!


And, as inspiration for our response, what better advice than that from Network Rail’s chairman Peter Hendy:Peter Hendy quote
