Costs of Glasgow airport rail link go up by £20m


The cost of the rail link between Glasgow Airport and the city centre has soared by £20m, it was revealed yesterday. Strathclyde Passenger Transport (SPT) has now estimated the cost for the link at £160m - up from rather than £140m - saying the rise is largely due to inflation.

The figure is revealed in a Private Bill to approve the link, which is set to go before the Scottish Parliament in November. SPT chairman Alistair Watson said: 'We have previously reported a headline estimate of £140million. This has now been revised to take into the account the most up-to-date prices. The costs of the project have remained stable.'

Although the increase in cost was largely put down to inflation, an additional £8m in costs also arose over the past year. Mr Watson said: 'The additional cost is due to junction alterations on the existing main line and the fact we have had to change the location of the airport station.'

The original estimate of £140m was based on industry prices in 2002. The revised figure has been drawn up on the basis of 2004 prices, so the final cost is likely to rise again.
