Labour pledges to resurrect Glasgow Airport Rail Link
April 8 2011
GARL was canned back in 2009 when the SNP government sought to target its scant infrastructure budget elsewhere but eyeing an opportunity Gray reckons he can bring it back from the dead.
The original scheme (complete with a 3DReid designed airport station) was originally costed at approximately £200m but this figure will doubtless have been inflated over the intervening period of inactivity.
Admitting that he didn’t know how he would fund the scheme Gray told the Evening Times: “It is £200million over a number of years. But it is one which is affordable from the capital budget. There are different ways of funding GARL; it can also be done through using Network Rail’s Regulated Asset Base.”
