The AAP has a project budget of 144 300 000 GBP and is an integral part of the 1 130 000 GBP infrastructure fund available through the City Deal to create a gateway for inbound business and tourist traffic to the Glasgow and Clyde Valley region with improved connectivity to and from Glasgow Airport. To do this the AAP is expected to include a fixed link from Glasgow Central Station to Glasgow Airport with a stop at Paisley.
An Outline Business Case is currently being developed to confirm the preferred option. The outline business case development includes the appraisal of tram-train and PRT as options. The outline business case will be presented to the City Deal Cabinet for approval in December 2016.
Based on the reports and appraisals undertaken to date, the tram-train option has the best overall performance both in terms of potential to increase modal shift and in terms of benefit-cost analysis.
Renfrewshire Council has identified requirements for external Professional Services to support development of a Glasgow Airport Access project. This includes the appointment of a a Lead Consultancy / interface role, and will focus on the development of a tram-train solution for the Airport Access Project. Services required under this contract, include a range of activities in relation to supporting options appraisal, outline and detailed design of the tram-train option. Other services provided as part of this contract may include technical support to assist in finalising the Outline Business Case, market engagement support, assistance in the preparation of tender documentation and site supervision during the construction phase. It should be noted that the Council reserves the right to alter this strategy as required and any contract awarded will have appropriate review and break points included to accommodate for a change in the strategic direction of the project.
