Consultation on Queen Street Station

26 Feb 2014

Network Rail has launched a public consultation to hear passengers’ views on the proposed £104m transformation of Glasgow Queen Street station.

The company has unveiled new designs for how the station will look as it begins an initial three-month long process to gather passenger and public views on the project.

Scotland's third busiest station with 20m passengers a year, Glasgow Queen Street needs to expand to meet predicted growth to 28m passengers by 2030 and to accommodate the longer trains that will be running on key routes in the future.
As well as overhauling Queen Street's rail infrastructure and operational capabilities, the redevelopment will transform passenger facilities and improve how the station interacts with the surrounding city.
The project is part of the £650m Edinburgh Glasgow Improvement Programme (EGIP), which will deliver a rolling programme of electrification across the Central Belt over the next five years and beyond.
Funded by the Scottish Government, EGIP will reduce journey times and boost capacity on key routes including the main Edinburgh Waverley-Glasgow Queen Street line.
