Glasgow Queen Street High Level: The new glass frontage of Glasgow Queen Street Station was lit-up blue to show solidarity with key workers and frontline NHS staff all across the country. Scotland's third busiest station Joined other venues and attractions like Glasgow's SSE Hydro and Falkirk’s Kelpies in lighting up in NHS colours to salute the dedication and efforts of healthcare workers in the battle against the coronavirus. It is hoped that the light shining from the new station onto Glasgow's premier civic square served as a beacon of hope, and as a symbol of support and solidarity.
