St Enoch station canopy heralds arrival of revamped subway network
January 20 2015St Enoch station subway station has taken its place at the foot of Glasgow’s Buchanan Street following redevelopment work carried out by AHR Architects and Graham Construction on behalf of Strathclyde Partnership for Transport.
Part of a wider £288m upgrade of the subway network its completion will allow attention to switch to a twin canopy to the south of St Enoch Square, following earlier refurbishment of the concourse and platform levels, with full completion anticipated later this year.
It is one of seven station refurbishments on the network intended to modernise services and impart a unified design approach to the system, with Hillhead and Partick amongst the first to benefit from a makeover.
Erected over the course of a single night-shift the glasshouse inspired portal consists of rolled tee arches tied together by longitudinal steel rods.
