£5m Milngavie investment is platform for rail improvement

Milngavie railway stationNetwork Rail will shortly begin a programme of work at Milngavie station to extend the platforms in an investment that will deliver greater operational flexibility on the line.

The work represents an investment of over £5m in the infrastructure, which will help improve performance.

Both platforms at the the station will be extended from 141m each in length to 205m by reintroducing 39m of unused platform and adding 25m of new platform at the south side of the station.

The platform work is not to operate longer trains to/from Milngavie station. Adding additional length to the platforms is crucial to enable the ‘stabling’ of trains and to allow some trains to have more time between arrival and departure. This helps to maintain the timetable and offer a more efficient and better performing service.
