Scottish National Party MSP for Glasgow Shettleston, John Mason, has warmly welcomed news that Network Rail will begin preparatory works at Dalmarnock Train Station this month.

John Mason, who fought much of his recent election campaign on the record of investment in Glasgow’s transport infrastructure, said he was ‘delighted’ with the news that work was to begin at Dalmarnock Station.

Commenting, John Mason MSP said:

“I am pleased that Dalmarnock Station has got the green light for works to begin in the next month.

“There is a lot of good news here in the East End and the new refurbished Dalmarnock station will be the latest in a string of SNP Government investments, which include the recently opened M74 motorway extension, the M80 upgrade, the new East End to Edinburgh rail link and a commitment to modernise Glasgow’s Subway.

“All this just goes to show that it’s the SNP who stand up for Glasgow whilst Labour, the Tories and the Lib Dems fight over the calamity that is the Edinburgh trams.

“With the 2014 Commonwealth Games fast approaching, the new refurbished Dalmarnock Station will be a huge asset to the overall success of the games and I am sure this will be one of a number of lasting legacies that will transform Dalmarnock and the East End of Glasgow”.
