SPT awards contract to refurbish two Glasgow subway stations

Graham Construction has been awarded a contract from Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT) to refurbish two Glasgow subway stations.

As part of SPT’s modernisation programme, Shields Road and Bridge Street subway stations will be upgraded.

Work at Shields Road will begin in July and at Bridge Street in August.

SPT senior director Charles Hoskins said, ‘We have already worked with Graham Construction on a number of our stations and it fully appreciates our need to continue to run services while the modernisation programme rolls out and the importance of maintaining our high standards of customer care in our stations during the works.

‘This investment by SPT will also see Graham Construction continue its investment in apprenticeships, graduate employment, work experience and curriculum support activities in our area, which has already seen a total of 25 individuals benefiting from this approach.’
