Edinburgh Gateway train station

Bus gateway now open for Edinburgh Gateway train station.  Issue raised that Lothian Buses have no plans to drive into new station due to impact on schedules.  Concerns raised due to fact that this decision conflicts communication from Lothian Buses prior to beginning of station build, and that the communication by ScotRail was neither clear nor comprehensive.

ACTION – W Hope will raise these issues in official CCC response to planners.

Attendee John Yellowlees, representing Murrayfield CC but acting in his role as ScotRail employee, addressed some concerns raised.  It is also recommended that items raised be directly communicated to Transport Scotland.
