Queen Street station redevelopment - Consultation Part 1

Network Rail is consulting on our plans to redevelop Glasgow’s Queen Street station and we want to hear what you think.

Have your say

Network Rail is applying for a Transport and Works Scotland (TAWS) Order to
acquire the powers and permissions to undertake the redevelopment of Queen
Street. As part of this process we will be consulting with impacted parties and the
wider public to enable them to help shape our plans for the station.

There will be two opportunities to comment on the proposal:

  1. 25th Feb - 31st May 2014
  2. September to December 2014

From this we will submit the TAWS Order in June 2015 with a view to being awarded powers in June 2016. You can find out more about the consultation, submit your comments and questions and formal submissions using the contact information further below.

What this work looks like

There are three main construction phases in the proposal:

  • Redevelopment of the east side of the station to facilitate extension of Buchanan Galleries.
  • Extension of the station platforms and operational remodelling of the track layout at the north of the station.
  • Expansion and full redevelopment of the station concourse and integration with Phase 1 development.

Why redevelop Queen Street Station?

  • Glasgow Queen Street currently handles circa 20m passengers per annum. This is set to grow to around 28m by 2030.
  • The current station does not accommodate longer trains needed on key routes.
  • Entrances and exits do not reflect the way passengers use the station or the way the station interacts with the evolving city.
  • Facilities and amenities for passengers are inadequate.
  • The general environs do not reflect the station’s status as a key gateway point to the city.

The new station

  • A fully accessible, modern, transport facility.
  • Improved access to an expanded concourse.
  • Enhanced aesthetics and passenger facilities in the station.
  • More efficient turnaround in train operations and a better quality of service.
  • Increased capacity; walking and circulation space and longer platforms.
  • A station that better serves the needs of passengers and the city.
