Improving transport for all

I will continue my campaign for increased investment in our roads network. Whilst the re-opening of the railway to Galashiels is assist the central Borders, more needs to be done to protect vital bus links, and invest in proper roads in other parts of the Borders.

I support the re-opening of Reston station and greater investment in our bus routes, the dualling of the A1 and extending the railway to Hawick and onto Carlisle.


Borders Railway problems risk undermining extension campaign

Local MP John Lamont has said the recent problems surrounding the Borders Railway is now undermining the campaign to get it extended.

There have been numerous reports with cancellations and carriage reductions in recent days, which have led to significantly overcrowded services.
