Partnership urges progress in campaign

The Partnership notes that St Andrews ‘receives an estimated one million visitors per annum, making it the most-visited town of its size in Britain - and the vast majority of these visitors travel by car.’ It also notes that there are more than 2000 daily commuting journeys into the town and that at times the effect of heavy traffic can be felt as far away as Cupar. The Partnership goes on, ‘Reducing the dependence on cars will reduce greenhouse gas and other harmful emissions, as well as improving the ambience and appearance of St Andrews, thus further enhancing its appeal.’

Starlink convenor Jane Ann Liston welcomed the Partnership’s support, adding ‘It is to be hoped that Fife Council and TayPlan will heed the request so that the proposal for a new railway can be further progressed without further delay.’
