To ask the Scottish Government what analysis it has carried out of the economic impact of the proposed Glasgow Airport Access Project tram link.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 5 December 2017

The Glasgow Airport Access Project is being taken forward jointly by Glasgow City and Renfrewshire Councils therefore it is for their project team to undertake the economic analysis of the costs, benefits and impacts of their proposals. An independent audit of the Outline Business Case was commissioned by Scottish Ministers, which included a review of the economic case as presented.
