Austin-Smith:Lord flying ahead with Glasgow airport rail link - images

The legislation that will allow Austin-Smith:Lord's proposals for a new direct rail link between Glasgow Airport and the city centre has won Royal Assent.

The move spells the go-ahead for the £210m scheme - designed with Faber Maunsell - which will allow passengers arriving at Glasgow Airport to be in the city centre in only 16 minutes.

Austin-Smith:Lord partner Iain Wylie said: 'We have worked very hard together with Faber Maunsell to bring this project towards reality, and I am delighted that Royal Assent has been granted for what is possibly the biggest transport project in the west of Scotland.

'It is a wonderful endorsement of the team's commitment and design talent,' he added.

It is hoped the rail link will be up and running by 2010.
