S5O-02845: James Kelly (Glasgow)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 23 January 2019

To ask the Scottish Government what assessment it has made of ScotRail's performance in the Glasgow region.

Answered by: Michael Matheson 31 January 2019

You will be aware that I instructed officials at Transport Scotland to serve a Remedial Plan Notice to ScotRail because of continued poor performance and expect the Plan to set out how ScotRail will address these issues.

I have also repeatedly stated in the Chamber that, this parliament must be afforded responsibility for Network Rail

The Alliance continues to deliver many initiatives aimed at supporting performance improvement in the Glasgow region with the implementation of a Donovan recommendation for Right Time Departure at Milngavie, this has seen an improvement to performance across the Strathclyde electrics routes.
