Brown and Adonis slam rail link decision
UK Transport Secretary Lord Adonis has slammed the SNP decision to scrap the Glasgow Airport Rail Link, saying that it was a ‘serious mistake’ that would badly damage the city's chances of boosting business, whilst Gordon Brown called it 'wrong and short sighted.'
Lord Adonis said: ‘The future expansion of Glasgow Airport was closely related to the rail link. It was going to make it possible for far more people to travel by public transport, promote faster and more reliable journeys and reduce carbon emissions greatly.'
‘The cancellation is a big setback for the airport, and will make Glasgow a less attractive business and tourism destination because the quality of links are not as good as they would have been. It's a serious mistake. More surprisingly, it was done at short notice and with no consulation with BAA at all. That is no way to run a transport policy.’
Gordon Brown also slammed the decision yesterday, describing it as ‘wrong and short-sighted’. The Prime Minister's comments came on the campaign trail in the Glasgow North East by-election.
