The MAJOR multi-million pound project to upgrade Glasgow's Queen Street station has taken another major step forward.

Engineers were on site today as the finishing touches were being made to the spectacular new glass exterior, facing directly onto George Square.

Glasgow Times:

Scotland’s third-busiest station is undergoing a £120 million project to redevelop and expand it.

Two extended platforms have already opened - platforms 2 and 3 with a 26metre extension to both.

Some 90 engineers worked over 21,000 hours to remove 2000 tonnes of material and install 100m of platform walls, 160m of track and connect it to existing infrastructure.

Overhead power lines were also extended.

The extensions will allow the larger Class-385 trains to use the platforms - making things better for passengers who complain of overcrowded trains and a lack of sufficient seating.
