Winchburgh needs a train station - sign our Petition!

We believe that Winchburgh deserves better! There is still no sign of a new railway station in Winchburgh, despite the new developments springing up around the town and the pressure this is putting on existing transport infrastructure across West Lothian. Local Lib Dem councillor Sally Pattle says: "Rather than more meetings, the residents of Winchburgh need a timetable of action. They were promised a new train station as part of the huge levels of development that were agreed to years ago. Depictions of a shiny new train station were even on brochures given out to prospective house buyers. The only thing that has happened since is new road infrastructure - the biggest example being the new Winchburgh junction on the M9 that opened last year. For several months in 2023 it wasn't even possible to get a bus from Winchburgh to Livingston where many people work or spend leisure time. The influx of new residents in Winchburgh has put huge pressure on existing public transport infrastructure across West Lothian which means that at a time when we're supposed to be transitioning to net zero - and when the Scottish Government has made a commitment to reduce car kilometres by 25% - people in Winchburgh are forced to rely on private vehicles. Instead of kicking the can further down the road, the Scottish Government must take control of this situation and lay out when the new station will arrive."
