Bad News & Good

It has to be a shame to see the Glasgow Airport Rail Link cancelled. The Airport needs a rail link to ensure future growth and it seems foolish to be cutting capital expenditure rather than trying to cut the Government's operating costs (its not as if the Government doesn't waste money). I'm sure though that they thought this through, and some of the budgeting seems fanciful. According to one report the cost of moving a fuel farm has increased from £5 Million to £30 Million. That's a lot of bad estimating.

There is good news as well though. Tom Harris MP reports that Glasgow Central won Station of the Year and First Scotrail won passenger operator of the year. Congratulations to them.
