Partick modernisation on track

Partick wall tiles

The modernisation of Partick Subway station is well under way, with the refurbishment due to be completed in late Spring.

The work is part of Strathclyde Partnership for Transport’s ambitious Subway modernisation project, which aims to deliver a revitalised Subway network to serve Glasgow for another generation.

Senior Project Manager David Gardner said:

“An incredible amount of work has taken place at Partick over the last few months. The ceilings have been stripped out and removed, with temporary lights and netting installed. Electrical and data cabling has been replaced, and new ceiling support systems are currently being installed. The main walls and the tunnel head walls have been re-tiled, while the central columns are now being tiled.

“We’ve also installed roller shutter doors on each platform for security purposes. And, next month, we’ll start laying platform floor tiles, which will help to deliver the fresh new look that has been so well-received at our flagship Hillhead station.”

Kelvinhall and Ibrox Subway station upgrades are next on the modernisation list, with works to start later this year. Along with Partick, they will be ready by the Commonwealth Games in 2014.

Detailed designs for Govan, St. Enoch and Buchanan Street stations are also under way.
