Contractors are now hard at work building the new £11m station at Dalmarnock in Glasgow’s East End.
The new station will replace the existing facility on Swanston Street. Dalmarnock is being redeveloped in time for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. The station will also help boost long-term regeneration of the East End.
The Scottish government, local authorities and EU funding are paying for the scheme.
Transport Scotland assumed responsibility for project oversight, on behalf of the partners, in summer 2010 and has awarded an £8.6m contract to Network Rail to deliver the facility.
Network Rail is also contributing up to £2.4m to the project.
