Winchburgh Train Station: update

Calls are growing for Transport Scotland and the Scottish Government to take the lead in developing a plan to deliver a train station for Winchburgh.

Politicians from all parties, as well as residents in Winchburgh and the developers behind the new homes and infrastructure being built there, are all campaigning for a new train station. With over 1,000 new homes now occupied in Winchburgh, pressure on infrastructure including roads and buses is increasing. Additionally, there is a knock-on effect in Linlithgow as commuters from Winchburgh head there to make their way to work, causing parking issues in and around the station.

According to Lib Dem Councillor Sally Pattle:

“Winchburgh Developments Limited do have resources ringfenced for station design, but without a strong lead from Transport Scotland and the Scottish Government, there is little they can do to start the project. And the longer the project lies dormant, the less likely it is to go ahead at all.

“At a time when we need to be doing far more to transition away from road usage and onto cleaner public transport, a train station for Winchburgh makes sense on many different levels. We need to make those with the power to deliver it understand that.

“If you feel strongly about this issue, please email your MSP today to let them know!”
