South Scotland MSP Colin Smyth and Annandale North Councillor Adam Wilson are encouraging local residents in Moffat and Beattock to attend the Beattock and Moffat Sustainable Transport Options Study.
The Study is being carried out by Peter Brett Associates as part of the Scottish Transport Appraisal Guidance (STAG). The public event taking place on Thursday provides the opportunity for the local community to give their views on the transport problems suffered in upper Annandale and on the solutions that should be adopted.
The public meeting will take place in Moffat Town Hall on Thursday 24th of January 2019 between 4pm and 8pm. Local residents can drop in at any times, during these hours.
Colin Smyth said, “The upcoming public meeting on Thursday is a real opportunity to make the case to reopen Beattock Station. I have no doubt there is a powerful argument to have trains stop in Beattock once again but if we are to see Beattock Station re-open its essential local resident drop into the consultation on Thursday at the Town Hall and make their views known.”
Councillor Adam Wilson said, “Local residents in Beattock and Moffat know all to well the problems we experience with public transport on a daily basis which is why it is essential as many local residents as possible drop into the consultation to make their views known.”
