Passengers advised of changed access into Queen Street station
- Region & Route:
- Scotland’s Railway: Scotland
From Saturday 21 July, the way passengers enter and exit Glasgow Queen Street station will change as the project team finishes the last of the demolition work on Consort House.
Direct access to Low Level services from Dundas Street will close and be replaced with a temporary walkway via Platform 2 on the main High Level concourse. The main entrance will remain open and will move further down Dundas Street.
The new passenger access will be in place throughout the rest of the redevelopment and will enable the project team to complete the remaining demolition work before construction begins to build a bigger and brighter station.
Jenna Clark, Project Manager for Queen Street redevelopment said “This is an important point of the project as we prepare to complete demolition work and put in place safe access to the station that will be there as we build the new station.
“We are working closely with ScotRail’s station team to minimise the impact that our activities have on station users and staff will be available to provide support and direction”.
The passenger assistance desk will remain situated on the centre of the concourse and lift access to the Low Level platforms will remain operational from Platform 7.

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.
