Reopen our Rails: Alloa to Dunfermline – Public Meeting (Alloa)
Reopening of the Alloa to Dunfermline Rail Link!
In order to establish the level of public interest from the communities of Alloa, Clackmannan, Kincardine, and the West Fife villages for the reopening of the Alloa to Dunfermline rail link, two initial Public Meetings have been organised:
Monday 13th May (7pm -9pm) – Kincardine Community Centre
Monday 20th May (7pm – 9pm) – Alloa Town Hall
The format for both meetings will be the same, firstly information on the history of the rail line since closure and potential ways it can be re-opened for passenger use, secondly a listening exercise to the views, concerns & transport needs of the local communities with inputs from key stakeholders.
The meetings are being hosted by Mark Ruskell MSP – Scottish Greens for Mid Scotland and Fife. The evening will involve small group discussions intended to encourage all people to contribute and have their say. There will also be a short presentation from David Prescott a local experienced rail consultant.
Feedback from these meetings will go back to Transport Scotland and other decision makers so it’s important the voice of the local community is heard as an important starting point for any more detailed feasibility studies to follow.
