Rail link planning applications to be approved today


The Glasgow Airport rail link will take a step closer to fruition today when planning applications are considered by Renfrewshire Council. A total of seven applications for approval for various parts of the project are to be heard, including plans for the station at Glasgow Airport and the bridge carrying the railway into the airport complex.

The airport rail link will run from a new station at the airport. A viaduct will take it over the M8, across the St James' pitches and the Murray Business Area, joining the main railway line to the east of Paisley St James Station. The line will be a little over a mile long before joining the main Glasgow to Paisley line and into a new platform at Glasgow Central Station.

The Glasgow Airport Rail Link Act was given royal assent in January this year, which effectively gives planning permission. However, certain aspects of the project require approval from the local authority.

A series of parts of the project - a viaduct taking the line from Paisley Gilmour Street station across football pitches, three other viaducts taking the railway through Paisley and two bridges and an embankment - need to be given the go-ahead. All the applications are expected to be approved by councillors.
