Idea 18: Introduce Congestion Charging to fund the modernisation of the Glasgow Subway

Introduce Congestion Charging for Glasgow to fund the modernisation & extension of the Subway network.

All major cities need large amounts of capital to fund transport infrastructure. Glasgow is no different. Introducing a congestion charge would generate enough capital over a period of time to fund the modernisation of the Subway, and the introduction of an Enterprise Zone along the length of its route would enable further cash to be collected from the uplift value that it creates.

These, and other mechanisms to increase the income into the Subway, must be considered if it is not to be an embarrassment come the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
