Motion S4M-13851: Winchburgh Tunnel

29 Jul 2015

That the Parliament welcomes the completion of the Winchburgh Tunnel upgrade as part of the Edinburgh Glasgow Improvement Project (EGIP); notes that this complex work, which cost £17 million and saw the lowering of the rail line to allow for its electrification, was delivered in just six weeks; appreciates the patience of the many rail passengers who have seen their journey times lengthened; congratulates the engineers and staff involved in completing this difficult task on time and without any major unexpected incidents, and looks forward to the benefits of faster, longer and greener trains.
