Access to major railway stations under investigation


Access to Scotland’s major urban railway stations is to be investigated by the Scottish Parliament’s Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee.

The Committee is today calling for the views of members of the public and other interested stakeholders. A survey has been issued to identify current access difficulties to major railway stations and to gain an understanding of how access to and within these stations could be improved.

The stations that the Committee would like to hear views on are Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh Waverley, Glasgow Central, Glasgow Queen Street, Haymarket, Inverness, Perth and Stirling.

Convener of the Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee Jim Eadie MSP said:

“Our Committee is carrying out a short piece of work on this issue to determine how easy it is for people to access Scotland’s major urban railway stations and use the rail network.

“Our survey aims to identify if there are shared issues being experienced by passengers up and down the country. We are looking to hear about how easy it is for pedestrians, cyclists and disabled people to access and move within these stations.

“We also want to know how access to other modes of public transport and taxis from stations can be improved to allow people to carry on their journey.

“If you are a rail passenger, please get involved by giving us your views via the survey or social media.”


The survey that is gathering views on access to Scotland’s railway stations is open until 8 May.
