The track was lowered to accommodate the installation of new OLE for the Paisley Canal Electrification.

The works consisted of the removal of the existing platform riser walls and foundations, followed by the reconstruction of all platform components, including copers, tactile paving and oversail blocks to the new levels.

The platform was re-constructed to Network Rail Company standard design, and included the re-positioning of lighting columns, lowering of the existing shelter, alterations to the existing pedestrian access to the station, installation of DOO mirrors and new fencing.

The works were carried out during a nine-day disruptive possession. The platform was successfully handed back to First ScotRail, with zero defects, and was opened for passengers, on schedule.


The works at Hawkhead Station required the lowering of the existing platform, following the lowering of the track through the station.
