Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 12 September 2017

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-10759 by Humza Yousaf on 6 September 2017, whether it expects to reach agreement on increasing cycle provision before the start of the overhaul and refurbishment of the high-speed trains and, if so, whether this will also include provision on services to the intermediate stations between Edinburgh/Glasgow and Inverness. 

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 22 September 2017

Transport Scotland has recently reached an agreement with ScotRail to increase the number of spaces available at intermediate stations from 2 to 4 and with 6 spaces (3 per power car) available for end to end journeys on the HSTs planned to be introduced into service in the latter part of 2018.
