Gilmour Street train station is set to receive more investment from the SNP Government this year with the installation of Wi-Fi for passengers. This comes on top of the £9 million renovation at the station and the £12 million upgrade of the Canal Street line showing the Government commitment to infrastructure improvement for Paisley.
Paisley’s MSP George Adam stated:
‘Once again we are receiving investment in Paisley from the Scottish Government. This will not only improve infrastructure for Buddies but will help commuters and businesses throughout the west of Scotland. It is fitting that as one of Scotland’s major railway stations Gilmour Street was announced as one of the first to receive Wi-Fi services.
‘This is the sort of support that helps businesses, makes journeys more pleasant and in a lot of cases more productive. Another example of moving our nation forward with innovation and technology.’
In the latest phase of the move towards providing Wi-Fi services on Scotland’s trains and stations, Gilmour Street has been named as one of 25 stations in Scotland that will see the service installed by December this year.
The SNP Government has promised to ensure that Wi-Fi facilities are available on trains and stations across Scotland’s rail network by 2019 and work is already under way to install these services with 59 ScotRail trains expected to be equipped with Wi-Fi by the end of 2013.
