E-Rail Study

Fife Council finally revealed the source of the data upon which they discounted the E-Rail report; yet again no account taken of possible new passengers. Similar calculations grossly underestimated the use of other new rail developments such as Edinburgh–Bathgate, Prestwick Airport and Edinburgh Park.

Councillor Jane Ann Liston said … ‘
To have put the whole concept of reconnecting St Andrews to the rail network on ice on the basis of such unreliable data is, to say the least, regrettable. I hope Fife Council will reconsider. What is required is a proper study of potential use, including quantifying the numbers of new passengers persuaded out of their cars.
