Reasons for signing

  • essential to reduce pollution, should also look at Lockerbie Dumfries
  • For family links, hospital links and safety
  • Not only as a quicker route for passengers, but too much freight on the A75 and A711. I remember signing a similar paper petition 35+ years ago, which sadly came to nothing. If the Borders can re-open their line to Edinburgh, we, in D&G must be given the same opportunity.
