Fife Council on board

Text of Starlink Press Release

St Andrews Rail campaign takes major step forward

The campaign to restore rail services to St Andrews has received a boost with Fife Council agreeing to investigate taking the proposal further with a view to setting the STAG (Scottish Transport Appraisal Guidance) procedure in motion.

Starlink convenor Jane Ann Liston said, 'The positive response from Fife Council marks significant progress, especially when added to the interest shown by First Scotrail and the encouraging response from Transport Scotland. I hope that soon those official transport organisations will be able to take the project forward.

In the meantime, Starlink has been recording all responses to the Tata report which will be passed on as input to the STAG procedure, as well as the information from the University's travel survey of staff and students.'

Those who wish more information about the Tata Steel study might be interested to know that its author Howard Pack will be speaking about it to CILT (Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport) in Discovery Point, Dundee on Tuesday 20th November, 17.30 for 18.00; admission is free and no booking is required.
