A new Edinburgh “mass transit” system and Glasgow “metro” could feature trams and dedicated busways under Scottish Government plans published today.
Lines in the capital may include between Granton and the city centre and south east, and re-opening the south suburban rail line, according to Transport Scotland’s new strategic transport projects review.
Expanding trams across the Forth into Fife could follow.
Other planned measures include doubling spending on bridge and roads maintenance in a £1.5 billion programme over five years, such as on the A82 north from Tarbet beside Loch Lomond north to Inverarnan.
