THE announcement that two subway stations are to be closed all day has been called "ridiculous" by exasperated passengers.  

SPT announced on Twitter that West Street and Kinning Park will not open at all today due to "operational issues".

They apologised for the inconvenience.

However, the announcement was met with frustration from a number of users due to stations being closed "frequently" in recent weeks with only "vague" explanations given.

One person wrote: "This "operational issues" excuse we continuously read about should be expanded upon.

"What IS the problem that very frequently closes stations."

Another said: "Trying to get to work this morning and KP shut down again, people do work on a Saturday you know.

"No explanation as usual why closed."

A third person tweeted: "Again! This is becoming a real pain."
