Passenger access at a busy train station in Glasgow is set to temporarily change.

Network Rail has announced pedestrian access at Anniesland station in the city's West End will change as work to install new street-level lifts continues.

Due to this, a new temporary route into platform 2 was opened on Thursday, January 25, to make space for the construction of the new lifts as part of the 'Access for All' programme.

Now, direct access to the platform is via Herschell Street from the adjacent church car park, using a temporary stairway and passengers will continue to use the footbridge to cross between platforms.

The original stairs to platform 2 have been temporarily closed as engineers prepare for excavation and piling work to support the installation of the lift towers.

Meanwhile, at platforms 1 and 3, the stairs have been shut since October, with both existing stairways to be reopened to passengers when the project is completed later this year.

The rail firm says when the work is complete, it will be easier for those with limited mobility or travelling with children, luggage, or cycles to access the platform.

Amanda Naughton, scheme project manager for Scotland’s Railway, said: “Space is limited in and around Anniesland station so we need to make some temporary changes to how people access the platforms.

"This will allow us to continue construction while keeping the station open.

“We appreciate the patience of passengers and the surrounding community as we continue to deliver these important access improvements at the station.”
