The new station, which cost £14m, has been shortlisted in the RICS Social Impact Awards Scotland. The UK Grand Final takes place in London on Thursday, 24 September 2020.

The awards show how infrastructure can have a positive social and environmental impact on the community.

“We’re thrilled to see Robroyston shortlisted for an RICS Social Impact Award. The station is already proving to be a great success, with passenger journeys in the first two months of operation exceeding expectation.

  1. Apparently it’s near to Robroyston but it’s closer to Millerston. Perhaps ScotRail should rename the railway station as Robroyston & Millerston or Millerston (for Robroyston).
