Question ref. S6W-01950
Asked by: Collette Stevenson, East Kilbride, Scottish National Party
Date lodged: 28 July 2021

Question

To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on the planned improvements to the East Kilbride-Glasgow Central railway line.

Current status: Answered by Graeme Dey on 24 August 2021


Answer

Network Rail continues to progress early, on site, construction activities whilst the necessary development work for the complete project is progressed.

In June 2021, Network Rail announced as part of the East Kilbride Enhancements Project, Hairmyres station is moving to a new site off Redwood Avenue – approximately 600-metres to the west of its existing location.

Scotland’s Railway, South Lanarkshire Council and Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT) continue to work collaboratively to fund and develop the expanded transport interchange at Hairmyres to encourage more people out of their cars and onto trains.

Future updates can be sourced via the dedicated project pages in the Scotland’s Railway website:-
