Airport rail link still on track


The Glasgow Airport rail link is still on track after talks about engineering works near the airport terminal, according to the Evening News. Airport owner BAA and Transport Scotland have been in negotiations over the relocation of a fuel depot to allow the line to reach the terminal.

There had been fears the work would be too expensive and the potential sale of the airport would threaten the link, planned to open before 2014. However, the newspaper reports that talks over the summer have focused on a solution to the fuel depot problem and Transport Minister Stewart Stevenson is considering a report detailing the different options.

The cost of moving the tanks is understood to have risen from £5m to £30m. Tendering for the track and bridges in Paisley has been delayed until the fuel depot issue is resolved. However, it is hoped the new line from Paisley Gilmour Street to a new station at the airport will still be completed in time for the Commonwealth Games in 2014. BAA Scotland told the Evening News it expected clarity in the next few weeks.
