Does Glasgow Need Its Own Rail Hub?

I’ve just been talking to a friend north of the border and he had not heard of the Northern Hub, which finally is getting the treatment and publicity it deserves.

He was unaware of a scheme in Glasgow called Crossrail Glasgow to link the two main stations and make journeys across the city a lot easier.

Reading about it here on Wikipedia, I can’t understand, why it wasn’t implemented before the Commonwealth Games this year.

Crossrail Glasgow and the Northern Hub, are just two of a whole series of projects to improve transport in our major provincial cities, like the Greater Bristol Metro, the extensions to both the Birmingham and Nottingham trams and the reopening of several important commuter railways.

Could it be that the decision on this rail project would have been taken in Edinburgh?
