Motion S5M-00377: Queen Street Tunnel

08 Jun 2016

That the Parliament understands that engineers have finished laying the first line of track through Glasgow Queen Street tunnel; notes the impressive nature of the project, with over 5,000 tonnes of concrete and rock used to create 945 metres of concrete basing, 820 metres of new slab-track units and 2,000 metres of rail; congratulates the workers from the Edinburgh Glasgow Improvement Programme on the work done so far; understands that, while this work is necessary, it has unavoidably caused disruption to many passengers, and, as such, looks forward to the completion of the project and the reopening of the tunnel and of Queen Street high level station in August 2016.
