Moves to fast-track plans for a new Barrhead train station have been welcomed. The Auchenback station, near Balgraystone Road, on the outskirts of town, was first mooted as part of the Glasgow City Region Deal that will see millions of pounds pumped into major projects across the west of Scotland. However, under those proposals, the new stop wasn't expected to open until at least 2021. [The site will be immediately west of Lyoncross Junction alongside Balgray Reservoir. - RAILSCOT Ed]
