To ask the Scottish Government how much of the £500 million fund for bus infrastructure, announced by the First Minister in September 2019, has been allocated to the M8 westbound, and what plans it has to allocate any further funds to the M8 westbound relating to bus infrastructure.
In 2019, the £500 million investment in bus included reallocation of roadspace on the Glasgow motorway network. The design development and business case work to support infrastructure to improve bus journey time reliability on the M8 through Glasgow and also on the M77 and M80, is currently moving towards completion.
Until this work is completed it is not possible to confirm the exact level of investment that will be required.
