Drumry Station platform works set to begin next month

Region & Route:
Scotland’s Railway: Scotland

Work to upgrade platforms at Drumry station will begin in January.

In a £2.2m investment, Network Rail will replace the existing platforms with more modern and easily maintained surfaces as part of the company’s ongoing investment to improve Scotland’s railway.

When complete, the platforms will be better protected against the elements, with improved drainage reducing the risk of puddles, and smoothed surfaces to eliminate tripping hazards.

The station will remain open during the work with one platform in operation, but passengers are being advised to plan-ahead as services will run with altered journeys in place.

In the first phase of works, from January 23 until April 3, passengers travelling east towards Drumry will exit the train at Drumchapel and return on the next train back to Drumry.

During phase 2, from April 4 until June 12, passengers travelling west to Drumry will travel to Singer and then return on the next train back to Drumry.

Kevin McClelland, Route Delivery Director, Network Rail, said:

“This platform upgrade project is designed to improve safety and comfort for passengers moving around the platforms at Drumry station.

“The investment we’re making will not only protect the platforms against the elements for the long-term but will enable better passenger distribution along each of the platforms which contributes towards improving railway performance and reliability.”

David Lister, Safety, Engineering and Sustainability Director, ScotRail, said:

“This is essential work that will make underfoot conditions on the platforms at Drumry station much safer and more comfortable for our customers, especially during the winter months.

“It’s yet another important piece of the multi-million-pound maintenance programme being undertaken across Scotland’s Railway to improve reliability and performance on the rail network.”
