SNP pledge to fund Clyde Fastlink
April 14 2011
Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced the party was upgrading its backing for the proposal from a “contribution” to stumping up the full whack whilst launching their election manifesto.
The document promises to open up government coffers to the first phase of the planned waterfront link, guaranteeing the dedicated bus link will wend its way to the SECC and Southern General prior to the starting pistol being fired for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Sturgeon said: “Other parties only talk about Fastlink. The SNP say it’s time to start. The SNP will put in place the funding to make that happen.”
