AMBITIOUS plans to build a bullet train between Scotland's two biggest cities have been dropped. The proposal for a high speed link between Glasgow and Edinburgh was announced by Nicola Sturgeon when she was infrastructure minister in 2012. But the scheme, which she claimed would cut journey times to less than 30 minutes, has been quietly abandoned. In a written parliamentary answer, transport minister Derek Mackay said it was 'not possible' to progress the scheme until details of the proposed cross-border leg of HS2, high speed link from London to the north of England had been finalised.
