Protests overrail showing
Campaigners have called for the Dutch firm in charge of ScotRail to be stripped of the franchise.
A demonstration demanding services be brought into public ownership was held at Glasgow Central Station, and came after of ScotRail’s boss apologised to customers at the weekend for the firm’s “unacceptable service”.
And the campaign will have healthy support from commuters on the East Kilbride line, which has been a source of consternation for some time. But there is light at the end of the tunnel, after it was confirmed investment in the route remained on track.
We told you in October how the Scottish government confirmed they had “prioritised” the line for enhancement works.
Campaigners have long called for improvements to the line between the town and Glasgow – with local politicians calling for electrification of the route.
This, along with dual tracking of the line, were put forward during Network Rail’s last route study.
