New Glasgow Queen Street Station building may be torn down [Scotsman]





Date: 14/01/2018

A partially constructed building that forms part of Scotlands biggest rail project faces being torn down in an extraordinary 11th-hour Scottish Government rethink. Sources have estimated the cost of the U-turn at Queen Street Station in Glasgow at between £3 million and £15m. Transport Scotland has ordered a review of the building in the car park, for rail staff and shops, as part of expanding the station to accommodate new electric trains on the main line to Edinburgh this year. The trains are finally due to start running in March, but other delays to the £800m Edinburgh Glasgow Improvement Programme (Egip) have already put back completion of the station until 2020.
