Network Rail visualises Queen Street Station improvements
July 11 2018
Network Rail has issued a fresh batch of visualisations to inform rail users of what awaits them following completion of a major reimagining of Glasgow's Queen Street Station.
Part of the Edinburgh Glasgow Improvement Programme the project will see the vaulting roof of the city centre terminus take centerstage above an enlarged concourse and platform area, enabling passengers to spill out directly onto George Square.
Jenna Clark, Network Rail Project Manager, said: “Using these latest computer-generated images, passengers at Glasgow Queen Street and the surrounding community can start to visualise how much bigger and brighter their improved station will be, but the Victorian train shed roof remains a key part of the structure and will be visible throughout the enhanced station.”
Network Rail estimates that 75% of the demolition work has already been completed, clearing the way for foundation work for a BDP-designed extension to accommodate eight-carriage trains and expanded retail upon completion in spring 2020.
