MSPs give rail link the go-ahead
The planned rail link between Glasgow Airport and the city centre was approved by MSPs yesterday. The Glasgow Airport Rail Link Bill reached its final stage in the Scottish Parliament and was backed by 118 votes to 8, with no abstentions.
The private bill was introduced to the Scottish Parliament by Strathclyde Passenger Transport (SPT). The new line, which due to be operational by 2010, involves upgrading 5½ miles of track and laying 1 mile of track between Paisley St James Station and Glasgow Airport.
Alistair Watson, chairman of SPT, said: 'This is a momentous day for Glasgow. We are now plugging a gap in the transport infrastructure which has existed for too long.'
