Borders MSP and Scottish Liberal Democrat Transport Spokesperson, Jim Hume, has this evening said that the Scottish Government must get on with the job of delivering the long awaited Borders railway line.
The MSP made the comments in advance of an official ceremony tomorrow (Tuesday 6th November) and criticised the Scottish Government for its “botched procurement process”.
Mr Hume said:
“The SNP have already wasted time and money in a botched procurement process and until now has been unable to say when the project would be handed over to Network Rail.
“It’s vitally important that there are no more question marks over the Borders railway line.
“The SNP must make up for lost time and stick to their commitment to deliver the railway by 2014, otherwise Borderers will be left feeling short changed.”
