Listen to this article

Transport Minister Keith Brown has confirmed that ‘no Glasgow train stations will close as a result of the Rail2014 consultation’.

Mr Brown reaffirmed the Scottish Government’s commitment to rail services after receiving more than 1,200 responses to the consultation, which asked for passengers’ views on how the next rail franchise should develop.

Mr Brown said:

“I am delighted to confirm that no stations in Glasgow will be closing.

“Indeed, we are looking at ways in which we can support the development of new stations on the rail network.

“The Rail Consultation has been an opportunity for people and organisations across the country to express their views on the future of rail services and how services are provided across Scotland.

“I am carrying out a tour of some parts of the network today and will be delighted to assure passengers face-to-face that their stations are safe.”
