Station


Name and dates

Hawkhead (1990-)

Opened on the Paisley Canal Line (Glasgow and South Western Railway).

Open on the Paisley Canal Line.


Description

This is a single platform station.

The station dates from 1990, the re-opening of the cut back Paisley Canal Line, and replaced Hawkhead [1st] which closed in 1966.

The current station platform is built on the former eastbound track and has a car park. Opening the station on a new site west of the original was an odd decision, the former site was available at the time with space for a car park.
