Garrowhill station, located in Glasgow, has now fully reopened to passengers after a £2.2m platform upgrade.
As part of the works, significant improvements have been made in the surfaces of the station platforms, with the reconstructed platforms designated to eliminate drainage issues and tripping hazards, making the station safer for passengers.
The upgrade forms part of wider improvements across Scotland’s railway, including significant refurbishment and renewal of stations – including at Glasgow Queen Street, Stirling and Lanark.
Passengers are now once again able to use both platforms.
Work has been ongoing at Garrowhill since February this year, with each of the platforms having been closed in turn for around eight weeks to enable the reconstruction.
Kevin McClelland, Route Delivery Director for Network Rail, said: “The completion of the platform upgrades is a significant step towards improving Garrowhill station for all passengers.
“These surfaces are designed to last longer, meaning passengers will be able to move around the station more comfortably and safely than ever before.
“And, importantly, the upgrade will enable better passenger distribution along each of the platforms as we continue to drive towards our commitment to improve performance on this line between Edinburgh and Glasgow."
Kirsty Devlin, Head of Projects for ScotRail, added: “This was essential work that put passengers first and was an important part of the multi-million-pound maintenance programme being undertaken across Scotland’s railway.
“The new platforms are designed to make underfoot conditions safer and more comfortable for customers, especially during the winter months, and they will also make a big contribution to enhancing services between Glasgow and Edinburgh.”
