More trains for Broughty

DUNDEE City East MSP Shona Robison has called for more frequent rail services at Broughty Ferry.

The local MSP has been calling for more stopping trains on the route for a number of years. Now she has written to Transport Minister Keith Brown reminding him of the campaign and requesting an update of the status of the proposals.

She explained: “I have long campaigned for improvements to local/regional services and to increase commuting possibilities and local train services at stations such as Broughty Ferry where there are few trains stopping.

“I have always been convinced that if more trains stopped, more people would use them, and particularly for short local trips.”

She concluded: “I hope that the Tayside Estuary Rail Service proposals will lead to much improved service levels at Broughty Ferry in the future.”
