Expert study recommends a tram link between Glasgow Airport and the city

An expert study will recommend the building of a tram link between Scotland’s Glasgow Airport and the city.

The proposal, in the long-awaited Glasgow Airport Strategic Transport Network Study, would be to use trams that can run on both light and heavy rail lines.

The study is not due to the published for a few days but transport minister Keith Brown has confirmed that a “a tram/train option” is recommended by the independent consultants.

The study follows a hugely controversial decision by the Scottish Government four years ago to drop a plan for a Glasgow Airport Rail Link.

Glasgow Airport and the airlines that use it have long called for action to deal with traffic delays to and from the airport at peak times.
