Rail link football pitch deal
The future has been secured for the 'largest concentration of playing fields in West Scotland', on the route of the Glasgow Airport Rail Link. Strathclyde Partnership for Transport has said 22 football pitches will be available in Paisley whilst construction of the proposed link. In addition, changing facilities will be built at St James' playing fields and a modern drainage system installed.
During the construction of the rail link, eleven football pitches will be provided at St James' playing fields and 11 temporary pitches will be available at sites nearby. After the completion of the rail link, 20 pitches will be available at St James' and there will be 2 further pitches at Ferguslie Park.
The plans are to be ratified by Renfrewshire councillors on 14 December. MSPs will vote on whether to give the rail link the go-ahead in Parliament today.
