The new tracks on the £330m Airdrie to Bathgate rail linking Edinburgh and Glasgow will create almost 130 new jobs. The track which is due to open in December will offer jobs like drivers, ticket examiners and station staff for Scots and is the same as the one which had operated in Scotland for 25 years
Though there was a dispute between the RMT rail union and the First ScotRail in the recent months on the fact that it may jeopardize the safety of the passengers, it is all settled now. The union had also said that it will urge the minister to ensure a guard on every service of the new link.
Designed in order to complete the ‘missing link’ between the communities in Glasgow and Edinburgh, the company declares that it is safe and is same as that which has operated in Scotland for 25 years.
The use of public transport will be beneficial with the new rail Airdrie-Bathgate. It also seems that this new form of employment will profit the economy as a whole.
