To the immediate south opened the two platform Shields Road [CGU] station of the City of Glasgow Union Railway creating a four platform station. Further south again, across the gulf of the General Terminus and Glasgow Harbour Railway cutting, were the two platforms of Shields station. Immediately to the west is Pollok Junction.

The original platforms closed along with those at Shields Road [CGU] when the station closed to passenger in 1966.
