Global infrastructure group Balfour Beatty has secured a £16m contract from UK-based Network Rail for the redevelopment of Glasgow Queen Street Station in Scotland.

The deal is set to support Network Rail’s wider expansion scheme, which aims to provide better accommodation for customers and address increasing passenger numbers.

Balfour Beatty will demolish the platform buildings and construct a new operations centre as part of the new arrangement.

Balfour Beatty Scotland managing director Hector MacAulay said: “Following Balfour Beatty’s recent successful completion of the new Edinburgh Gateway railway station and our ongoing work for the Dundee Railway station and hotel, we are proud to continue our work with Network Rail to make Glasgow Queen Street Station a world-class facility.

“The redevelopment of Glasgow Queen Street station will generate additional community benefits through our commitment to local employment, and apprenticeships and will further support the region’s economy, creating opportunities for SMEs.”

Glasgow Queen Street Station is situated between George Street to the south and Cathedral Street Bridge to the north, and serves the Greater Glasgow conurbation's northern towns and suburbs.
