It's such a fantastic asset to the city. Not sure what I'd do without it.

Central Station upgrade makes first impressions count

Urban Realm - 14th November, 2014



Quote:
With public tours of Glasgow’s Central proving to be a runaway hit Atkins have unveiled the most recent intervention to the 135 year old station.

This has seen the entrance to low level platforms from the upper concourse signified by the introduction of a tall archway structure designed to recall the original decorative gateways and barriers which once graced the terminal.

A separate entrance from Union Street has also been given a makeover with the introduction of large format porcelain tiles and large format gates featuring ornate metalwork based on motifs and symbols present in the surrounding historic structure.

Project architect Logan Doak, commented: “There was an over reliance on complex signage within the station and there was a desire to simplify the passenger journey and communicate important gateways from a distance through material and form. Although significant in scale the new Arch and gateways are elegantly proportioned and delicately perforated, laser cut steel plates help belie their structural weight.”

Already old news from SPT:

Quote:
http://www.spt.co.uk/2014/11/smoking...-spt-premises/

Smoking and e-cigarettes are now banned in SPT premises
10 November 2014



Subway joins other modes of public transport in prohibiting the use of e-cigarettes

On Friday, 7 November, SPT’s members agreed to a change in the Subway Conditions of Travel to prohibit the use of electronic or vapour cigarettes.

In the last two years, there has been a significant increase in the usage of electronic or vapour cigarettes. These devices are not considered in the Smoking, Health and Social Care (Scotland) Act 2005, which prohibits smoking in public places. However, given that the World Health Organisation has highlighted potential impacts on health and considering that SPT passengers have raised concerns about the use of these products in SPT premises, SPT has decided to ban the use of these devices on our premises. This ban also applies to SPT staff and will be enforced in the Subway, bus stations and all SPT offices

I was in Glasgow last weekend and was 'playing' with the metro line. I wrote playing, coz the metro there looks pretty much like a toy but it's kind of cute.
Here are some pictures i 've taken there:
