Description

This is an island platform station.

The original street level building, with a main block of two storeys, was by [[John James Burnett] but was demolished in 1967 around the time the Anderston area was being re-developed and preparations for the Kingston Bridge were in progress.

The re-opened station building is in the shadow of the Kingston Bridge on a traffic island in the midst of a busy road junction. At track level the west end of the eastbound platform is open air.
