Glasgow 2014: Train stations share £3m Games revamp cash

Train stations across central Scotland are to be given a minor revamp ahead of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Transport Scotland is spending £3m on measures to improve travel for passengers at dozens of stations.

The cash will fund the replacement or renewal of help points at 56 stations. Passenger information screens will also be replaced at 29 stations.

Other stations will have new ticket machines, car park barriers and ramp and platform extensions.

Transport Minister Keith Brown said: "These improvements, together with the millions already invested in rail infrastructure and ongoing work to provide more rail services and greater capacity during games time, will support major events in 2014 will leave a lasting, beneficial legacy for the whole nation.

"By making rail travel as trouble free as possible we can encourage greater use of enhanced public transport services and make journey times as reliable as possible."
