Rail link bill gets royal assent


Plans for a rail link between the city centre and Glasgow airport have been granted Royal Assent. MSPs backed a rail link - which will cost between £170m and £210m - in November. Now the private bill, which was promoted by Strathclyde Passenger Transport (SPT), has been given the go-ahead by the Queen.

Alistair Watson, the chairman of SPT, said: 'Every major international city has an airport rail link and we believe that Glasgow should be no different. We are very pleased as this is a seal of approval. Now the real work begins.'

The plans will see 1.2 miles of tracks laid between Paisley St James station and Glasgow Airport and 5½ miles of tracks upgraded. The service will run from Glasgow Central, where a new platform will be built, with four trains an hour going to the airport. The project is due for completion within three years.
