Jim McGovern Welcomes Joint Economic Study for Improved Transport Links
25 May 2012
Dundee West MP Jim McGovern today welcomed the news that a joint economic study, which could result in better transport infrastructure for Dundee, is to be undertaken as a matter of urgency.
Jim McGovern said;
“This study is long overdue.
“I have been campaigning since my election in 2005 for better transport links for Dundee.
“As the city becomes a prime tourist destination, with the waterfront improvement and the opening of the V&A, it is imperative that transport links to and from the city are first class to meet the expectations of the people of Dundee and visitors to the city.
“This is why I have continually pressed for major improvements to the Railway Station and increased air services at Dundee Airport.”
Mr McGovern concluded,
“If the impact study kick-starts the process of improvement to our transport infrastructure then this has to be a move in the right direction.
“I shall continue to campaign for first-class transport connections to the city.”
