GLASGOW Queen Street's new glass frontage was lit-up blue last night to honour key workers and NHS staff across the country.

Scotland’s third busiest station joined venues like the SSE Hydro and Falkirk’s Kelpies in lighting up in NHS colours to salute the efforts of healthcare workers in the battle against the coronavirus.

Alex Hynes, Managing Director at ScotRail said: “We are delighted to illuminate the new glass façade of Glasgow Queen Street Station as a symbol of public support for the vital and fantastic work of NHS staff who are tackling the coronavirus.

“We are hugely grateful to everyone in the NHS and all key workers across the country, including those in our railway family, who are playing a massive role in supporting all of us across the country at this time.”

The illumination of Glasgow Queen Street’s new glass façade came as people throughout the country once again joined in a mass round of applause at 8pm on Thursday to thank NHS staff for their incredible work.

The lighting of Glasgow Queen Street wad undertaken by the Stage Group, following the clear social distancing messages from government, and has not involved any unnecessary travel.
