Airport rail link row rumbles on
The leader of Glasgow City Council has accused Scottish Government ministers of providing misleading information about the cost of the city's airport rail link, which was cancelled late last month. Steven Purcell expressed concerns to MSPs over what he believes is double-accounting on the scheme.
The SNP announced the link would be axed on September 17 amid concern over rising costs and Scottish budget cuts. But Mr Purcell said yesterday that the costs had only gone up by £2.5m - not the £70m he was quoted by the Government. A spokesman for the SNP disputed Mr Purcell's £2.5m claim, saying the costs were constantly changing.
