Anniesland Station To Go Step-Free

This document on the Government web site is entitled Access for All: 73 Stations Set To Benefit From Additional Funding.

Anniesland station is on the list.

The Services shown in Wikipedia are comprehensive and numerous considering that the station has just two through platforms and a bay platform.

These pictures are of the station.

This Google Map shows the layout of the station.

Note.

  1. The two main Glasgow stations are to the North.
  2. The two through platforms are numbered 1 and 2 and go under the footbridge in the middle of the image.
  3. The bay platform is to the North of the station building and is mainly served by a shuttle to Glasgow Queen Street station. I wrote about this shuttle in Anniesland And Glasgow Queen Street Via Maryhill In A Class 230 Train.

In Winner Announced In The Network Rail Footbridge Design Ideas Competition, I wrote how the competition was won by this bridge.

Could a factory-built bridge like this be used at Anniesland station?

I suspect it will be possible, but the site is rather cramped!

Conclusion

A step-free footbridge would make the lot of passengers changing between platforms 1 and 3 much better.
