First phase of £5m Glasgow Central upgrade begins

20th December 2023 | Jack Oliver

Work has begun on the first phase of a £5m upgrade of the retail provision at Glasgow Central train station.

The three-phase project will see changes to the layout of a number of existing retail units on the station’s concourse.

As the development progresses, existing tenants on the concourse will be relocated, new retail units will be developed, and the current office accommodation will be refurbished.

Three retail units have already been closed in preparation, with the removal of signage, illuminated advertising boards, and a photo booth.

Conor Mclaughlin, Network Rail’s project manager for the work at Glasgow Central, said: “We’re excited to be progressing this multi-million-pound investment to improve the retail offering for passengers at Glasgow Central.

“We’ll work with stakeholders throughout this project to deliver the work and we will do what we can to minimise any inconvenience both inside and outside of the station.  

“We’d like to thank passengers and lineside neighbours for their patience while this work is ongoing.”
