Glasgow City Council Leader Susan Aitkin has confirmed that transport agency Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT) has been tasked with developing the case for the project, including setting out the strategic business case, over the next two years.

“Clyde Metro brings together SPT, Glasgow City Council for Glasgow City Region, and Transport Scotland to look at a long-term integrated approach to transport infrastructure and services across the region,” SPT said. 

It will also look at urban development regeneration as part of plans to deliver wider transformation benefits to housing, place-making, sustainability, economy, environment, health and social strategies.
