West Lothian railway station to undergo £3.5million transformation [Daily Record]





Date: 14/02/2018

Livingston South station is set to undergo a £3.5m transformation this spring. The work is part of a £160m project to electrify the Edinburgh Waverley-Glasgow Central line, which will close for 10 days at Easter. From Thursday, March 29, to Monday, April 9, no trains will run on the line via Shotts while Network Rail engineers work to widen and extend both platforms at Livingston South. As well as work to the platforms, the redevelopment will see the construction of lifts on both sides of the station to deliver step-free access, installation of new staircases and the re-alignment of existing ramps.
