Queen Street station redevelopment - Consultation Part 2
Network Rail is undertaking a second period of consultation on our plans to redevelop Glasgow’s Queen Street station and we want your views.
As we told you earlier in 2014, big changes are coming to Glasgow Queen Street over the next couple of years, with ambitious proposals to redevelop the station as part of the Edinburgh Glasgow Improvement Programme (EGIP)
Queen Street station is the gateway to the city from the north and east and is an important entry point for commuters and visitors alike, serving the economic, business, retail, civic, educational and tourist sectors. It also serves as a key interchange for Glasgow subway and Buchanan Street bus station.
Projected growth in passenger numbers means the station also needs to grow to meet future demand and reflect changes in the way it interacts with the developing city. It also needs to better serve the needs of passengers as they move through and out of the station towards their ultimate destination.Timeline of Planned Works
Timeline of planned works
Network Rail is applying for a Transport and Works Scotland (TAWS) order to acquire the powers and permissions to undertake the work at 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.
This is the second opportunity to comment on the proposal;
Part 2 – 1st October to 23rd December 2014
From this we will submit the TAWS order request in June 2015 with a view to being awarded powers in June 2016.
