High speed rail network

Scotland must be fully connected to any UK high speed rail network, Transport Minister Stewart Stevenson said today.

The Minister was speaking ahead of his meeting with UK Rail Minister Lord Adonis.

He said:

"There is no doubt that a high speed rail link connecting Scotland, London and Europe would bring significant economic and environmental benefits.

"Improved journey times could provide significant benefits to Scotland's economy, improving connections and opening up new opportunities. Shorter journeys could also drive a real travel shift from air to rail and significantly reduce our emissions.

"Lord Adonis recently asked High Speed 2 (HS2) to examine the potential for expanding high speed services to Scotland and I will ensure Scotland's voice is heard in this work. It is important HS2 works up a fully developed case for a high speed rail project that links Scotland to the major capitals of Europe.

"While we support High Speed links to Edinburgh and Glasgow it is vital these connect effectively to our existing network so that all parts of the country can enjoy the benefits."
