Councillor Alastair Majury on ScotRail Public Meeting

Following on from the public ScotRail meetings held last year (2019), ScotRail have agreed to a further public meeting this March (Monday 23rd from 7:30pm) in Bridge of Allan’s Allan Centre.

The meeting will give ScotRail the opportunity to explain what progress has been made with improving the rail service to and from the Dunblane and Bridge of Allan stations, along with other issues such as grass cutting at Bridge of Allan’s train station.

It was announced in December that the franchise operator Abeillo will lose its contract in March 2022 instead of in 2025. Whilst in January it was revealed that ScotRail’s rating soared from 79 to 89 per cent in the latest survey by passenger watchdog Transport Focus. The ten-point increase last autumn compared to the same period in 2018, when satisfaction plunged to ScotRail’s lowest for 16 years. A total of 1,200 ScotRail passengers were surveyed in the National Rail Passenger Survey (NRPS).

It also comes as the fourth boast for the beleaguered operator within weeks after punctuality improved, the complaints rate fell and fines for service failings reduced.

Local Dunblane and Bridge of Allan Councillor Alastair Majury said:

“I am delighted that ScotRail has agreed to a further public to both inform local rail passengers about the future plans for servicing our local community, and to hear directly from local residents about any remaining issues that they face. I would encourage everyone who regularly uses both Dunblane and Bridge of Allan’s train stations to attend this meeting with ScotRail.”
