Campaigns

Integrated Transport

I will campaign for integrated transport in the Scottish Borders. The Borders needs better transport connections to help residents and visitors alike get across the constituency. We need to ensure that different modes of transport are linked. This includes reopening vital Borders railways like Reston Station and extending the Borders railway.

Improving Digital Connectivity

I will campaign for a digitally connected in the Scottish Borders. The Borders is crying out for faster more reliable Borders. I will fight hard to see superfast broadband come to every part of the Borders.

Skills Challenge

I will campaign to skill-up young Borderers with the skills they will need for the future. I want them to have the skills the Borders needs to grow and for young people to play a significant part in the Borders future.

Infrastructure

I will campaign for improved infrastructure in the Scottish Borders. Roads are simply not fit for purpose and the Borders lacks the infrastructure required to attract business. I will work hard to ensure our roads are improved and we have business-friendly infrastructure including dualling the A1. I want to see the Borders grow and we need the infrastructure in place to do that.
