ScotRail has invested £40m to improve train stations and services across Scotland.

Under the investment plan, £20m has been invested in station improvements including new CCTV cameras, customer information systems, toilets, waiting rooms and shelters.

The investment will provide 416 four-person seats and 164 refurbished bench-style seats at 150 stations, automatic ticket gates at Aberdeen, Ayr, Dundee, and Stirling, 1,800 cycle spaces, 12 new waiting rooms, and lighting upgrades in nine stations and 16 car parks.

ScotRail had promised the investment when it was first awarded the franchise to run the country’s trains.

In addition, external funding of £28m has been secured for station improvements from Transport Scotland, Network Rail, Regional Transport Partnerships and local authorities.
