Fastlink is the way forward

13 Sep 2011

Plans have been unveiled for a new £40 million bus link to serve Glasgow, with the opportunity to have Fastlink in place for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

An ultra modern bus operation is to link Glasgow city centre with the SECC and the new Southern General Hospital. Strathclyde Partnership for Transport has drawn up a £40million business plan for the Fastlink scheme which has now been presented to the Scottish Government. Bosses are hoping to hear within weeks if ministers will fund the cost of the vital transport project.

Councillor Gordon Matheson, Leader of Glasgow City Council, said "Fastlink promises reliable, quality public transport which will make Glasgow more sustainable, healthier and a more attractive place in which to live, work and invest."
