The scheme, drawn up by BDP, will entail demolition of the present concourse and its replacement by a new expanded platform area extending out to George Square via a 500m glass facade, creating the necessary space for a new fleet of longer Class 385 carriages.
Humza Yousaf, minister for transport and the islands commented: ”This continued investment in our key rail hubs will not only accommodate longer trains and the future growth in passenger numbers, it will also improve the overall service experience.”
The £112m project is expected to complete in 2019, helping to meet projected growth in passenger numbers from 20m today to 28m by 2030.
