Letter to Milngavie Herald: Bring forward Allander Rail Halt

I wholeheartedly agree with your correspondent Gavin Templeton about the need to bring forward the proposed Allander Rail Halt.

It is time for all the agencies involved – Network Rail, Abellio, Strathclyde Passenger Transport and East Dunbartonshire Council – to get together to make this happen.

Several years ago my colleague, Gil Paterson MSP, carried out a survey showing overwhelming support for this initiative from residents.

In other parts of my constituency, such as Westerhill in Bishopbriggs, there is a similar urgent need for this matter to be addressed.

Increased housing means more commuters and rail halts must be seen as a necessary part of our infrastructure if our communities are to thrive.

Ignoring the problem will not make it go away and I urge all parties involved to put this at the top of their agenda.

Yours, Rona Mackay MSP Strathkelvin and Bearsden
