Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
The Minister for Transport and Veterans (Keith Brown) Transport Scotland is the national transport agency for Scotland. Scottish ministers meet transport officials regularly in the normal course of business, and rail freight is one of a number of topics that we discuss.



Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Keith Brown First, NPF3 is still going through the system, if you like. On the specific development at Mossend, there is a live planning application there, so I am not able to comment on it specifically. However, I can say that in general we are very supportive of rail freight, as I think we have demonstrated t...

Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
The Minister for Transport and Veterans (Keith Brown) Sustrans, which is managing the process on our behalf, will make an announcement this Friday, 4 April, as previously stated, detailing successful applications.



Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Keith Brown I share in giving praise to local authorities, those who have been involved in the bids and Sustrans, which undertakes the exercise for us. As Alison Johnstone rightly says, it has been extremely successful, with around £34 million worth of bids, although there is only £27 million of grant available...

Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Keith Brown I am happy to respond to Claudia Beamish, although I did not catch every detail of her question. She will be aware that we have doubled the amount of resource going into active travel and she will know about the statement that the Cabinet Secretary for Finance, Employment and Sustainable Growth made...

Meeting of the Parliament 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
The Minister for Transport and Veterans (Keith Brown) Following completion of the Glasgow airport strategic transport network study, I have asked Transport Scotland to work with Glasgow airport, Renfrewshire Council and Glasgow City Council in considering further the feasibility of a tram/train link from Glasgow airport to Glasgow Central station.

Meeting of the Parliament 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
Keith Brown It was indeed an interesting meeting with RailQwest but the outcome was for me to say to RailQwest that if it wants to take that proposal forward—as it is not one of the priorities currently being pursued by the Scottish Government—it would have to work with the regional transport partnership. That ...

Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 26 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 26, 2014
The Minister for Transport and Veterans (Keith Brown) Thank you for the opportunity to come before the committee again to provide an update on transport.

We estimate that the Scottish Government’s capital investment programme for 2013-14 will be around £3.2 billion and that it will support about 40,000 jobs across the Scottish economy. That ...

Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 26 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 26, 2014
Keith Brown The recent study was led by Glasgow Airport Ltd, rather than by the Government, and was carried out in conjunction with the Government, Renfrewshire Council and Glasgow City Council. It identified a number of things, including the short-term bus improvements. We support that and have asked the partn...

Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 26 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 26, 2014
Keith Brown Mary Fee says that the cost of the project would be £92 million; I think that the price that was first quoted for the Parliament building was £10 million, and it cost £432 million. I am not saying that that would happen with the tram-train link; I am just saying that the initial figures are very pro...
