Bidders sought for £112M Glasgow rail station transformation

Glasgow queen street

Network Rail has issued an invitation to tender for the £112M rebuild of Queen Street station.

The work involves extending the station’s platforms and concourse, so that it can accommodate the longer electric trains being introduced on the network. The rail element of the project is not part of the tender.

The aim is to get the transformation completed in 2019. The scope of the project includes major demolition work, new buildings, redevelopment of the station concourse, south and west façades, reconstruction and extension of station buildings, and construction of extended platforms to accommodate eight-car trains.

ScotRail Alliance managing director Phil Verster said: “Scotland’s railway is about more than running metal boxes up and down the tracks. We are all about using trains to connect people with jobs, businesses with customers and communities with more opportunities to grow and prosper. The changes we are making in the coming years will make sure that we have a modern fleet, running on improved infrastructure to and from world-class stations. That is a rail network we can all be proud of.”
