More trains needed at Lockerbie

During my 12 years as a MP, the number of train services at Lockerbie has more than doubled giving those living in Dumfriesshire greater access to our major cites north and south of the border.

However, more still needs to be done and that's why I will be continuing to push for further trains to be brought to Lockerbie in meetings with transport bosses.

In particular, I am keen to see a direct service arrive at Edinburgh before 9am allowing those at Lockerbie to get to work and appointments in the capital on time. I will also be pushing for later services to be put on in Glasgow and Edinburgh so that people in this constituency can enjoy what our cities have to offer at night without having to rush home early.

Continuing to connect Lockerbie to Glasgow and Edinburgh on a more frequent basis will drive our rural economy.
