Work starts on Queen Street revamp

Work on the major £100m revamp of Queen Street station started on Sunday 6 August, with renovations expected to be complete by 2019.

The development will see longer platforms to accommodate larger trains, as well as increased capacity for the current 20m annual passengers, and the construction of a new glass frontage facing George Square.

Rodger Querns, Network Rail programme director for Queen Street redevelopment, said: “Securing the powers provided by the Transport and Works Scotland (TAWS) Act process has enabled us to take forward the next phase of the redevelopment of Queen Street station.

“We are fully committed to carrying out these enhancements as quickly as possible and with the minimum of inconvenience for the city.

"We thank station users for their patience and co-operation as we deliver this important investment in their station.”

Network Rail said the work was needed to meet predicted growth to 28 million passengers by 2030.
