CARRICK’S MSP has voiced concern over the future of the Girvan to Stranraer railway line, and Girvan station, after a decision by Irish Sea ferry operator Stena Line to bus its passengers straight to Ayr from its new port at Cairnryan.

Adam Ingram said that he was disappointed with the decision in the light of which he would now be seeking a meeting with operators First Scotrail to “find out their intentions”.

It was also revealed this week that people in Carrick are missing hospital appointments and struggling to get to work after bus timetable changes over the past few weeks have left people stranded.
