Lack of stations

The creation of new or ­re-opened stations at East ­Linton and Reston is always to be welcomed (your report, 19 November). However, there are still massive high populations areas without stations.

When the Larkhall line was re-opened a ­further extension to Stonehouse/Strathaven was promised but failed to materialise.

Denny/Bonnybridge conurbation urgently needs a station as does Bathgate East; and Dysert Acceleration with electric traction considerably reduces station dwell time thus allowing more suburban stops for services in the ­Central Belt.

Road building is a continual movement. The railways seem to be only one-off projects.
