A scheme for a tram-train service was unveiled last week as one of two options being put forward for a new transport link between Glasgow city centre and Glasgow Airport.
Carriages would operate on the mainline rail network between Glasgow Central Station and Paisley before moving on to new tram rails running between Paisley and the airport terminal building, offering a 16.5min direct journey.
A system is also being considered in which passengers would travel by standard train to Paisley before disembarking and changing to a light-rail operation to complete their journey to the airport.
The two options are contained in a strategic business case which has been developed jointly by Renfrewshire Council and Glasgow City Council. It will be put before councillors in both authorities before going to the Glasgow and Clyde Valley Cabinet for approval.
If approved, further work would be done to develop more detail on both schemes before a final preferred choice is made next year.
The unveiling comes just weeks after Glasgow produced figures which it said showed it was now one of the strongest-performing airports in Europe. www.glasgowairport.com
