Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT) said all services would be suspended from 2 July. They are due to resume on 1 August.
A replacement bus service is being provided for passengers during the closure.
It will follow the subway route, with additional direct services to the city centre operating from key stations.

The maroon upholstery and orange grab-poles of this Glasgow Subway car give it away as one of the central trailer cars introduced in 1992 to make all trains three cars long (and filling the platforms). Colours aside the interior fittings are identical in appearance to the 1979 driving cars see image [[30788]]. This is probably deliberate. Photographed on an eerily quiet system early on 4 January, a Scottish public holiday.
