    Glasgow-Barrhead electrification needs to extend to Kilmarnock at least. We need to reinstate the Neilston-Uplawmoor line and electrify through to Kilmarnock. The Caldwell halt remains redundant. The line south of Ayr needs further development to compete with the grandiose A77. We fully deserve the Glasgow Crossrail scheme, the city's sore thumb also Glasgow/ Edinburgh-Aberdeen-Inverness through trains to compete full on with roads.
