Rail link procurement started


Transport Scotland has started the procurement process for the Glasgow Airport Rail Link (GARL), which will see a new line built from near Paisley St James station to the airport. The project involves upgrading 9 km (5.4 miles) of existing track between Shields Junction and Paisley Gilmour Street station and laying around 2 km (1.2 miles) of new track between Paisley St James station and Glasgow Airport.

Work on the link - which crosses St James playing fields - will involve building embankments, the construction of bridges across 3 minor roads, building a new 140m single-span bridge across the M8 motorway and the construction of a new airport rail station. The majority of the rail line, including the new station, will be carried on a viaduct.

Expressions of interest for the GARL Branch Line Phase One project are being sought from companies with expertise in major civil engineering projects involving road, rail and air transport. The contract - which is expected to be worth between £90m and £130m - will be awarded next summer with work for completion by autumn 2011.

GARL is being delivered by Transport Scotland and Network Rail with additional financial support from BAA and the European Commission, through a Trans-European Networks Transport (TEN-T) grant.
