Reasons for signing

  • We need the Railway back in Dumfries and Galloway to boost the economy and because transport infrastructure is poor and neglected
  • I signed the petition because it would make a great difference to people in Dumfries and Galloway to get around easier and create more tourism. Just look at the Edinburgh to Tweedbank railway, it created a difference.
  • This would be far better for the infrastructure of Scotland and Dumfries and Galloway as it would bring much needed work and tourism to the area.
