Scottish parliament questions cost of Glasgow Airport rail link


The planned Glasgow Airport rail link came under fresh attack last night, despite cautious support from a committee of MSPs. A Scottish Parliament committee set up to consider a private bill for the project questioned its viability and rebuked its promoters for poor consultation.

The committee of MSPs backed the bill to go to the full Scottish Parliament but raised serious issues about why the line, which is to run from Glasgow Central to Glasgow airport via Paisley Gilmour Street, would not have direct links to the rest of Scotland.

The committee also raised questions about the cost of the project. SPT lodged the bill with parliament in January, claiming the link would cost £160m. Six weeks later the executive, which would have to pick up much of the bill, said it thought the figure would be between £170m and £210m.

It also had concerns about the way SPT ran its consultation, questioning why it did not offer any alternative routes to the proposed spur from Paisley to the airport across local playing fields.
