Highland Main Line investment not enough - David Spaven [Scotsman]





Date: 17/04/2019

Ten years ago the rail freight industry had good cause to feel confident about the prospects for shifting freight from trucks to trains along the Perth-Inverness corridor. In 2008, the Scottish Government's Strategic Transport Projects Review (STPR) identified upgrading the largely single-track Highland Main Line (HML) as the third-top priority among 29 road and rail schemes across Scotland. Investment of between £200 million and £450m was envisaged, including 'additional loops, dynamic loops or lengthening of double track sections' designed to benefit both passenger and freight traffic.
