Rail partnership is launched along line
A community rail partnership covering Rutherglen and Cambuslang has been launched.
And those behind the scheme are keen for residents in the two towns to get involved.
Rail 74 wants to improve the environment and link communities between Rutherglen and Hamilton Central.
It was launched this month with a special event that saw those involved travel on the line from Rutherglen to Hamilton before a lunch at St Mary’s for All.
James Ledgerwood of Scotrail Alliance said: “We know that railways are the lifeblood of many communities across the country.
“Community rail partnerships are an excellent way for us to work in partnership with local communities to maximise the wider opportunities our services can bring.
“Rail74 has some really exciting plans in place and we look forward to working within them in their delivery.
“I know they have the drive and determination to make a real difference.”
The partnership brings together groups from across the community to improve and promote the local railway line .
Rail74 has been initiated by the two South Lanarkshire business connectors, Diane Whateley and Suzie McCheyne, both seconded to Business in the Community Scotland.
