Lift towers successfully installed at Anniesland station

The installation of the new lift shafts and linkspan footbridge’s marks a key milestone in the Access for All project at Anniesland Station over the weekend.

The site team have worked extremely hard over the past 8-months to complete the mine remediation grouting, piling and reinforced concrete foundations and retaining walls to reach this key point in the programme.

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.
