Views sought on future transport investment in South West Scotland
Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity, Michael Matheson said:
"This study is a great example of collaboration between national, regional and local government to really get to the heart of how transport affects the lives of everyone living, working or travelling through South West Scotland.
"Engaging with transport users including the public is an important part of this study and the Online Survey is a great opportunity for people to put their views across. I would encourage anyone with an interest in transport in the South West of Scotland to complete the online survey so their views can be taken into consideration.
"This transport study is considering how we can improve road, rail, public transport and active travel on the key strategic corridors including those served by the A75, A76, A77 and A701 together with the railway corridors to Stranraer and Carlisle via Kilmarnock and Dumfries, with a focus on access to the ports at Cairnryan.
"It will identify a range of options for improving transport that can be considered as part of the second Strategic Transport Projects Review which will look at future transport infrastructure projects for the whole of Scotland."
