Lift towers successfully installed at Anniesland station

Network Rail engineers worked through the night to install the steel structures at Anniesland railway station on Saturday 15 June.

Great Western Road was temporarily reduced to one westbound lane at Anniesland Cross to accommodate the three cranes needed to lift the steelwork safely. The same road closure will no longer be required this coming weekend.

The lift towers are 12 metres tall, with steel walkways connecting the upper towers to the existing station platforms. This will make it easier to use the station for those with mobility difficulties, and people travelling with bicycles, pushchairs, or heavy luggage.

The footpath underneath the railway bridge, parking bays, and the inside eastbound lane of Great Western Road will remain closed for the duration of the project, which will be completed later this year.
