Law junction for web

A rail halt at Law is one of the options that will be considered.

 

I welcome the news that, following a reconsideration of their position by SPT, they will now be in a position to fund a Scottish Transport Appraisal Guidance (STAG) across the Clydesdale county, which will allow the STAG to progress to its next phase.

This means that transport options already identified can be considered between now and March 2019.

The purpose of the STAG is to focus on addressing the provision of travel options to improve access to employment and key services, as well as supporting tourism in the area.

The 18 options identified for consideration include providing rail halts at Law or Symington, a park and ride for Lanark station, providing shuttle buses between Law and Carluke station, and providing a shuttle bus to New Lanark, as well as looking at walking and cycling routes.

The previous phase of the STAG found a clear public desire to address the challenges of public transport provision in Clydesdale. We know the knock-on effects a lack of effective provision can mean for rural communities, so I am pleased that SPT have agreed to fund the STAG project in Clydesdale.

This gives us a major opportunity to consider how we can increase the integration of our transport options, improve access to public transport, and explore how we can strategically improve the offering of transport links in Clydesdale.
