BAA withdraws rail link objection


BAA has withdrawn its opposition to the £210m scheme to build a rail link between the city centre and Glasgow Airport. It has been revealed that BAA will help to fund a linkway between the new rail halt and the main terminal.

Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT), who is developing the project, said it had reached an agreement with BAA to enable the airport operator to lift its objection. Previously BAA had expressed concern that the scheme could affect airport operations and its own expansion plans.

SPT also said that BAA would contribute to a passenger link from the airport station, which is to be built on the south side of the main multi-storey car park. The transport minister Tavish Scott said: 'The agreement that has now been reached moves the project forward, and I am pleased that BAA is onside.'

A one mile spur line will connect the airport to the rail network in Paisley. Four trains an hour, with journeys taking 16 minutes are due to run between Glasgow Central and Gatwick Airport by the end of 2010.
