Rail travellers from Dumbarton are being given the chance to take a peek inside £120 million Glasgow Queen Street Station redevelopment project.

The station is being transformed to create a bigger and brighter transport hub for the city, with work due for completion in 2020.

However, the public will get a preview when the station takes part in this month's Open Doors 2019 when Scottish construction sites pull back their hoardings for public tours.

The tours are part of a campaign to attract more people into careers in construction and 23 sites - including the station - are taking part.

Visitors will have the chance to see the many career opportunities available and learn more about how to join the industry.

Open Doors 2019 is being delivered by Build UK in partnership with the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) and it runs from Monday to Saturday next week.

The £66 million expansion of the famous Burrell Collection in Glasgow – Burrell Renaissance - is also included.

Kevin McClelland, route delivery director, Network Rail, said: “By taking part in this year’s Open Doors campaign we’re able to let people experience Glasgow Queen Street station’s transformation live from the construction site which is a unique opportunity for us.

“We’re now in our final year of construction with lots of activity underway to create the new concourse building and alongside our main contractor Balfour Beatty, we’re looking forward to sharing the progress that we’ve made so far.”

Barry Dawson, local manager, CITB Scotland, said: “CITB is proud to be a partner in this excellent initiative.

"This year’s Open Doors event allows visitors access to a huge variety of construction sites around the country where they can see for themselves the many careers available in our sector. We encourage people from all ages and backgrounds to sign up and see just what construction has to offer.”

Once on site, visitors will gain exclusive access to various aspects of the construction work being carried out, along with tours and presentations.

They will also be encouraged to find out more about potential careers in construction at the industry’s careers website – Go Construct.

Places for each of the venues are limited and visitors must book in advance.
