Stations to be upgraded for Commonwealth Games

12 Apr 2012

A £1m programme of improvements in passenger facilities at 19 railway stations in Glasgow and Lanarkshire has been announced, with the work to be completed in time for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

The stations in line to be upgraded are close to key Commonwealth Games venues or at 'feeder' stations likely to be busy during the event.

Work on the ScotRail programme should begin later this year.

The upgrades will include new customer information screens, waiting shelters, seating and lighting.

The Glasgow stations to benefiting from the investment include Exhibition and Partick, which are both in the Clyde Waterfront area.

The news follows a recent announcement of £246m funding from the Scottish Government to upgrade the Glasgow Subway.
