Upgrade of Hillhead Subway Station begins


SPT advise that the upgrade works by the contractor will remove the existing celiling at platform level section over a series of weekends. The internal features of Hillhead subway will be refurbished over the next year.

The key improvements provided are the installation of two new escalators; the relocation of the ticket office and the creation of retail space; and replacement of all materials on floors, walls and ceilings. There will be new wayfinding, information and signage for passengers.

For anyone concerned about accessibility issues, DDA enhancements will include hearing loops, tactile maps, tactile paving and colour contrast flooring.

There will be energy efficient lighting installed along with a major public artwork by Glasgow's artist Alasdair Gray.
