PROPOSALS TO connect Glasgow Airport to the city’s main railway station and the national rail network have taken a step forward as part of the £144m Glasgow Airport Access Project. Specially-built tram-trains will operate on the heavy-rail network between Glasgow Central and Paisley Gilmour Street before transferring onto new track for the final leg to the airfield.
