Stirling’s MP has welcomed the UK Government investment in the Caledonian Sleeper Service, which will be running from Stirling and other Scottish cities. £50m of UK Government investment has ensured the replacement and upgrade of the old service, including the opening of the upgraded Caledonian Sleeper lounge at Stirling Station.
The sleeper was launched in Central Station, Glasgow last week (Sunday 28th). The Highlander service will stop at two locations in Stirling Council area: Stirling Station and Upper Tyndrum Station in Breadalbane.
The launch event marks the public introduction of the new carriages on the “Lowlander Service” between London Euston and Glasgow Central or Edinburgh Waverley.
This will be followed by the introduction on the “Highlander” route between London and Aberdeen, Inverness and Fort William in the coming weeks.
Stephen Kerr MP said:
This is a wonderful development which I hope personally to make use of and I know many people will welcome. It will improve connectivity between Stirling and the South of England.
I am delighted at this investment that can only give a boost to our economy.
