Press Release from Ross Greer, Green MSP for the West of Scotland:
“People in Rhu and Shandon are well aware of the benefit that would come from having access to the rail network, as well as the economic opportunities a new train station can bring to the communities. With the new pipeline fund we’ve secured, people in the area can now put their proposals forward for a new station and I look forward to working with them to see that happen.
"These stations have been closed since 1964, and there’s so much potential for reopening a link to Glasgow and the Highlands. Pop-up stations would be a step towards reversing the legacy of the transport policies of the 1960's when rail lines were ripped up and the car was king. They would enable testing of new stations and allow more robust business cases to be developed.
