£150,000 improvement project starts at Bogston Station

Friday 28 June 2019

A £150,000 scheme to replace the existing pedestrian guardrail (parapet) on the access ramp at Bogston Railway Station starts on Monday 8 July.

The access ramp is owned and maintained by Inverclyde Council.

Councillor Michael McCormick, Convener of Inverclyde Council’s Environment & Regeneration Committee, said, “Bogston is a busy station. Over 40,000 passengers used it last year. It’s important to maintain the pedestrian access ramp in peak condition. This is a major investment which will benefit local people and visitors.

“We’ll do our best to minimise the disruption caused to passengers. A lot of the work can be done without closing the ramp but there will be times later in the year when we will have to shut it. Our aim is to limit the closures to 9pm until 5am so the ramp can stay open during the day.”

Alternative routes will be in place for pedestrians when the ramp is shut.

The access ramp is close to the railway, which means part of the work has to fit in with the train timetable.
