  • Why is the project being delivered?

    We’re providing step-free access at Port Glasgow Station as part an ongoing investment to improve accessibility in Scotland’s railway stations.

  • How much will this cost?

    The project has been funded by the Access for All (AfA) scheme, with contributions from Inverclyde Council with a current estimate of around £5m.

  • What are the timescales?

    Network Rail developed an outline programme for the works in 2022

    In autumn 2022, STORY was appointed as main contractor and, alongside Network Rail, is developing the detailed design. Work on site will commence in February 2023 with the construction of the bridge expected to begin in May. Installation of the bridge and lifts is scheduled to be completed towards the end of the year.

  • How will the community be kept up to date?

    We will endeavour to keep the local community updated on the progress of the project.

    Key project milestones will be communicated to residents via traditional media and social media. In addition, notification letters of planned works will be sent to affected residents ahead of time in order to best indicate the dates / times / type of work which will be undertaken.

    We will also have a community update board at the station that will provide weekly updates on the works as they progress.
