Airport sets out rail plans

Extended platforms and a refurbished railway station will be needed to enable Glasgow Prestwick Airport to meet its target for reducing car use by passengers.

The airport's draft masterplan, published last week, aims to increase the number of people travelling to Prestwick by rail from 20 per cent to more than 30 per cent over the next 25 years.
