Protective workwear may be needed for Subway improvementsPosted on 29/10/2012
Protective workwear for those working underground may be needed as the task of improving the Glasgow Subway begins.
Transport Scotland is to invest £2 million in enhancements to public transport in the cities of Glasgow and Dundee, with £1.2 million of the European Regional Development Fund cash to be spent in Glasgow.
The investment was announced by deputy first minister Nicola Sturgeon at Govan Subway station in Glasgow, one of four stations on the south side of the city that are set for improvements to make them more accessible, secure and welcoming.
Ms Sturgeon said: "Transport infrastructure is a key component of urban regeneration and by making public transport more accessible, we can help connect people with employment, training and leisure opportunities."
The rest of the cash will be split between the creation of a more integrated transport network in the east of Glasgow and the establishment of the new Lochee transport hub in Dundee.
It is not just the south side stations on the Subway that are being improved, as Strathclyde Passenger Transport recently agreed a deal to speed up the moving walkways linking Buchanan Street station in the city centre with Queen Street railway station.
