The Project

Robroyston provides Glasgow with its 60th station, and serves a community growth area connecting Millerston and Robroyston commuters heading for Glasgow on the M80.

The new station is located adjacent to the existing line and partially developed on the disused Robroyston Yard which closed in 1967. This new station development enables a half hourly service to both Glasgow and Edinburgh along a major rail route.

Delivery coincided with timetable changes for December 2019, therefore it was vital the station was completed on programme.

The first train called at Robroyston station at 08:37 on Sunday 15 December, which marked the introduction of the new timetable, and signified successful delivery.

AmcoGiffen were awarded the multi-discipline design and build contract, which included; Civils, Structures, M&E, P-Way, Telecoms.
