Glasgow enjoys an extensive transport mix, easing travel to,
from and within the city. A number of motorways serve the region
giving high-speed road access to locations across the UK.
The city is served by bus links, a subway system and the UK's
second largest suburban commuter rail network making it a top
choice for companies relocating or expansion. For
international travel, three major airports, serving more than 130
destinations, lie within 45 minutes of the city centre.
A number of capacity boosting projects are also being developed
- A £445m extension to the M74 motorway, to improve transport
links to the entire west of Scotland. Completion anticipated
by late 2011.
- New £90m East End Regeneration Route to be completed by
- New £110m Fastlink project. The scheme will use a 15 mile
exclusive roadway running alongside the River Clyde and operate 25
flexi-trams. Project to complete by 2014.
- A 10 year £200m in Glasgow International Airport, during which
time passenger numbers will triple. Recent developments
include a £10m international pier extension, the first phase of a
£31m "skyhub" terminal extension and revamped pick up and drop off
