To help facilitate the continued rollout of Subway modernisation
To help facilitate the continued rollout of Subway modernisation there will be no Sunday services on 6 and 13 November 2022.
A shuttle bus service will be available, free of charge for intending Subway passengers, between Partick and Govan only. The bus service will run during Subway operating hours from stance 1 at Govan and stance 2 at Partick. Staff will be on hand to assist.
These short closures will allow our contractor teams to work intensively on the efficient and safe installation of cabling and equipment within the Subway tunnels. It is also expected that a number of closures will also follow early in 2023.
This additional time the closures give the Subway Joint Venture (JV), contracted to deliver the Subway modernisation programme, will progress the installation of our new signalling and communication systems for the new trains. This work involves laying cables between stations and then mounting them onto brackets within the tunnels.
The closures will also give the JV the opportunity to progress initial civil works required to strengthen our station platforms to enable the installation of Platform Screen Doors (PSDs) at a later date.
