Labour Councillor for Fochabers Lhanbryde Ben Williams has today written to the Managing Director of ScotRail raising concerns about the impact of ScotRail’s ‘temporary’ timetable on services to and from Moray, as well as demanding to know when the timetable, which was brought into effect from today, will end.
Commenting on his letter, Cllr Williams said:
“For too long ScotRail has tried to run with a shoestring staff, with the Inverness to Aberdeen always being something of a ‘Cinderella’ service. Regular travellers on the line will know it wasn’t exactly a brilliant service to begin with, so for it to be cut back even further really is enormously concerning.”
“I’m worried about the impact these cuts will have on those without access to alternative forms of transport, as well as the effects on tourism in Moray. I have written to the Managing Director because I know that individuals and businesses will want to know when they can expect these services to return to normal.”
