Commuters to face one-way train system during Glasgow 2014

Milngavie Train Station

Milngavie Train Station

Commuters heading from Glasgow to Milngavie during the Commonwealth Games will have to endure a one-way system on the city’s train stops.

The new system has been brought in to ease congestion during the Glasgow 2014 sports extravaganza.

Anyone travelling west from Glasgow, including to Bearsden and Milngavie, will be unable to board at Argyle Street. Instead, they will have to catch the train at Central Station.

Equally, anyone looking to head east from Glasgow can only board at Central.

Passengers can still get off trains at either of the stations and only those who normally get on at either Argyle Street or Glasgow Central Low Level are affected.

More than a million extra journeys are expected during the Games, most of which will run through Glasgow’s low level stops.

Andy Miller, ScotRail’s Commonwealth Games project manager, said: “It’s essential that we make these changes so that spectators and regular customers can flow safely through these two stations, which will be particularly busy.

“We appreciate we’re asking people to change their normal routines but it will speed up their journey home.”

Spectators to events are being urged to leave their cars at home and walk, cycle or take public transport.

People are also being asked to plan ahead for making their normal journeys to work across the city.

Glasgow 2014’s Accessible Shuttle buses can be booked at glasgow2014.com/accessibility.
