Glasgow Central upgrade works continue
Network Rail have brought forward plans for an internal reconfiguration of Glasgow Central railway station with the removal of an existing curtain walled stair enclosure and its replacement with a hardwood and wrought iron reinforced concrete access.

Designed by ISP Architects to allow an existing lift shaft to be maintained the stair will be overclad with new porcelain tiles to match new retail entrance porches below.

Concrete blockwork walls will be overclad with Trespa Cladding.

The upgrade is the latest in a raft of improvements to be rolled out at the station including a new gin bar carved out of the basement catacombs and introduction of new porcelain tiles and iron gates to signify entrance and egress points.

This is useless and it's going to look even more rubbish in reality. Such a waste of money. Shameful

Maybe spend some money improving services?
