Contractor appointed for £7m Govan Interchange upgrade
May 7 2015£288m modernisation drive.
Encompassing the neighbouring bus station the work will see a new Fastlink stop built along with sweeping glass entrance canopies and covered walkways. Internally new passenger lifts will be installed as well as a modern ticket office and new flooring, wall and ceiling finishes.
External concourse areas will be repaved in Caithness stone with glass security barriers regulating access to individual bus stances.
Elsewhere the existing 1970s station will be simply cleaned and repointed.
SPT Chair Jim Coleman said: “Easy interchange with bus and Fastlink services are essential to encourage the uptake of public transport use to the new South Glasgow hospitals. To help make that as seamless as possible, our customers and those who work around Subway stations deserve a pleasant and welcoming environment. We also hope these works will be a real boost to the area.”
Work on the AHR designed scheme is scheduled to complete by the end of next year.
