There have been further calls for the reinstatement of a direct rail line between Perth and Edinburgh.
Two Councillors at Perth & Kinross Council are due to raise a motion this Wednesday asking officials to write to the Scottish Government asking for a review.
Quoted in the Courier, Councillor Calum Purves said:
“There are a lot of people living here who commute between Perth and Edinburgh, so it would certainly get used. And it would build on Perth’s position as an inter-city transport hub, as well as creating real economic benefits for the area.”
Councillor Mike Barnacle said:
“To me, this is a no brainer. If you can do this in the borders, then they can do it here.
“While I fully support the concept, we would have to be very careful when planning out a route. There has been a lot of development at the old line since it was closed down.”
