– Scottish Parliament written question – answered on 17th April 2002.
To ask the Scottish Executive from whom the land was acquired to extend the park and ride facilities at Croy Station as announced by the Minister for Enterprise, Transport and Lifelong Learning on 21 March 2002; whether this land was purchased or gifted and, if purchased, what costs were involved in total and broken down into the land price and associated charges, and what the date was of completion of the sale.
To ask the Scottish Executive where the extended park and ride facilities at Croy Station announced by the Minister for Enterprise, Transport and Lifelong Learning on 21 March 2002 will be located, detailing the agencies and processes employed in deciding this location.
To ask the Scottish Executive whether any alternative location was considered other than that chosen for the extended park and ride facilities at Croy Station announced by the Minister for Enterprise, Transport and Lifelong Learning on 21 March 2002 and whether it will detail each alternative site and the reason for the chosen location being preferred in each case.
The first phase of the extension of park and ride facilities at Croy Station will be constructed on land belonging to North Lanarkshire Council north of the railway and east of the B802 and will remain in the council’s ownership. This site was chosen by Strathclyde Passenger Transport because it could be developed quickly to meet the immediate need for additional park and ride opportunities.
Options for siting the second phase of the extended park and ride facilities will be considered by Strathclyde Passenger Transport and North Lanarkshire Council in consultation with Railtrack, ScotRail and landowners. This will form part of a detailed study before any decision is taken on the location and nature of the second phase.
