Upgrade the East Kilbride line
A petition calling on the Scottish Government to invest in upgrading the East Kilbride rail line
It’s time to upgrade the East Kilbride line.
Network Rail have developed proposals for the electrification and enhancement of the East Kilbride railway line, including proposals for a second platform at East Kilbride and sections of double track or loops to support more trains to and from East Kilbride.
Three of the top ten most overcrowded services in Scotland already run on the East Kilbride line and passenger numbers are forecast to grow. Investment is needed.
The Scottish Government should upgrade the East Kilbride line, in line with Network Rail’s proposals, to improve rail infrastructure and secure better, faster, more reliable services for local passengers.
