Dundee LibDems agree North East services are key to future of East Coast Main Line

Commenting as the East Coast Main Line comes into public ownership, Liberal Democrat transport spokesperson Alison McInnes MSP said, "... I challenged the First Minister to ensure the long term future of direct trains from London to Aberdeen and Inverness. These are crucial services.

"People will only use the East Coast Main Line if it is fully integrated with their local branch line. When capacity, reliability and convenience improve across the whole rail network people will be encouraged to leave the car at home and take the train."

Here in Dundee, LibDem Council Group Leader and former chair of TACTRAN, the regional transport partnership for Tayside and Central Scotland, Cllr Fraser Macpherson, added, "It is vital that the future of direct trains to Aberdeen, serving Dundee on its journey, is secured."
