Answered by: Michael Matheson 14 February 2019
The South Glasgow Timetable Capacity Study (SGTCS), commissioned by Transport Scotland with support from Network Rail, has been undertaken in order to assess the impact of future rail enhancements required to meet future growth. The study objective is to understand the capacity constraints within the South Glasgow Rail network including those at Glasgow Central station. This has sought to make the best use (capacity utilisation) of the current infrastructure. Network Rail have been fully involved in this process.
