Plans for a new railway station in West Lothian are set to stay on the drawing board, after the Scottish Government said it has no money and argues that the project needs to be led by the housing developer.

And West Lothian's veteran Labour councillor Tom Conn said "It's a problem for others to sort out. The council is not a rail provider." Councillors heard this week that it " remains unclear" what the role of national transport agency is.

Since a proposed new station was first announced in 2012 several new stations have been opened as the Scottish rail network has regenerated.

West Lothian Council set up a meeting in April between Winchburgh Developments Ltd, the Scottish Government and Transport Scotland.
