£21 Million for Cairnryan Rail Link

RELAYING the rail link to Cairnryan could cost £21 million. Councillors were given the figure yesterday (Wednesday) while considering Stranraer¹s new transport interchange.

A report put before this week's Wigtown West Area Committee indicated that the cost of reinstating the rail link between Stranraer and Cairnryan could even top that figure, once land acquisition was added to the total.

The report stated that a preliminary study of the plan identified a range of infrastructure requirements, including signalling; earthworks, fencing and track over a six mile corridor and six new bridges over roads on rivers.

Also required, according to the document, would be "a new bridge to take the A77 over the railway; provision of four road level crossings if permitted; and construction of two passenger stations (at the Stena and P&O ferry terminals)."
