The Scottish Government has given the final nod to provide substantial funding for the Glasgow subway upgrade in Scotland as per the proposals of the Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT).

The capital contribution by the government for the £290m ($468.2m) plan will help SPT raise additional funds from other sources.

The modernisation proposals includes new trains with automated signals and refurbished stations with better accessibility along with smartcard ticketing.

The upgrade will help provide important connections around the city and make onward connections.

The Glasgow subway is the third-oldest underground metro system in the world after the London Underground and the Budapest Metro.
