This is one of the reasons why Glasgow is extremely attractive
to companies considering corporate relocation. Transport links feature three
international airports within 45 minutes drive of the IFSD. The
closest, Glasgow International Airport, only 15 minutes away,
offers up to 60 flights per day between Glasgow and the London
airports and serves 90 other destinations worldwide.
Glasgow has the UK's largest suburban rail network outside
London and its biggest rail station, Glasgow Central, sits on the
eastern edge of the IFSD.
Along the western edge is the M8 motorway, offering ready access
to Scotland's motorway network (M80, M77 and M74) and all points
north, south, east and west.
The city also has an underground rail system with two city
centre stations offering easy access to the IFSD and an extensive
bus network centred at Buchanan Styreet Bus Station.
Glasgow offers one of the most sophisticated, competitive
telecommunications environments in Europe. BT, an early partner in
the IFSD's development, invested £50 million in the broadband
infrastructure which helps the city deliver class leading standards
for security of service, value for money, future proofing and fast,
More recently, Gigabit City fibre is being installed, supporting
internet connectivity up to 100 times faster than the UK average.
15 kilometres of new fibre infrastructure is being laid.
All of this is backed by on going investment in the public
realm, particularly through the City Deal, creating a high quality
environment for the District and ensuring that every visit to the
IFSD is impressive from start to finish.
