Airport boss enters rail link row


The managing director of Glasgow Airport, Amanda McMillan, has entered the row over the axing of the airport rail link, saying that she did not recognise the figure of £70m in additional costs used by the SNP to justify its decision to scrap the project.

In a letter to west of Scotland MSPs, Ms McMillan said claims that the airport would have received the extra funding directly as part of the development was ‘simply not the case’. She said: ‘The figure of £70m is not one we recognise. Our understanding is that this cost is, in the main, associated with the reprovision of existing services and facilities, many of them operated by third parties.’

Responding to a parliamentary answer by First Minister Alex Salmond, she added: ‘The notion, as some have suggested, that the Scottish Government would have given us £70m ‘before an inch of railway line was laid’ is completely false.' She added: 'Any responsibility for underestimating the cost of the airport reprovision works is a matter for Transport Scotland. This was their project.’
