Passengers in Renfrewshire are set to benefit from a £200,000 investment at Williamwood Station. Major repair work will be carried out on platform one from today, Monday 16 January, making the surface smoother for passengers and protecting the concrete for the future. The work will be completed on 25 February. David Simpson, Route Director, said: “The essential repairs we carry out now will offer real benefits to passengers in the area and will reduce the need for some maintenance activity in the future. “This investment is part of our commitment to ensure Scotland’s railways are fit for the 21st Century. We have an experienced team on hand who will be working in shifts round the clock to complete the work as quickly as possible, minimising disruption.” Letters have already been sent to residents living near the station to tell them about the work.

About Network Rail

We own, operate and develop Britain's railway infrastructure; that's 20,000 miles of track, 30,000 bridges, tunnels and viaducts and the thousands of signals, level crossings and stations. We run 20 of the UK's largest stations while all the others, over 2,500, are run by the country's train operating companies.

Usually, there are almost five million journeys made in the UK and over 600 freight trains run on the network. People depend on Britain's railway for their daily commute, to visit friends and loved ones and to get them home safe every day. Our role is to deliver a safe and reliable railway, so we carefully manage and deliver thousands of projects every year that form part of the multi-billion pound Railway Upgrade Plan, to grow and expand the nation's railway network to respond to the tremendous growth and demand the railway has experienced - a doubling of passenger journeys over the past 20 years.
