Afterwards a StARLink spokesperson commented: “Today marks a great step forward in the campaign to reconnect St Andrews to the rail network. The MSPs all showed a desire to push the campaign forward and described the case for a St Andrews railway as ‘compelling’. We have every confidence that the procedure will now gather momentum, having already been included in the Tay Cities Deal.”
