Glasgow Airport rail link film gives passenger's eye view of route

24.05.06

Passengers can take a look into the future of rail transport in Glasgow today, after a film which gives them a passenger's eye view of the proposed Glasgow Airport rail link was launched.

Strathclyde Partnership for Transport - the authority for public transport in west Scotland - launched the film, which can be downloaded online at www.spt.co.uk/garl. The 5 minute film takes viewers on a journey along the rail link route, which will run from Glasgow Central to the airport via Paisley Gilmour Street station.

SPT introduced a Private Bill to the Scottish Parliament in January which details their plans for the new rail link. A committee has now been established to consider the merits of the Bill and has been hearing evidence from the SPT, objectors and transport experts.

The plan is to upgrade 5.4 miles of existing track between Shields Junction and Paisley Gilmour Street and lay 1.2 miles of new track between Paisley St James station and the airport. The cost of the rail link is estimated to be as much as £210m and SPT hope it will be up and running by the end of 2009.

If MSPs approve the plans, the rail link will provide a train service between Glasgow Central and the airport every 15 minutes. Paisley Gilmour Street will be the only stop along the journey, which will take 16 minutes.
