Glasgow Central was lit-up blue this week to show support with NHS staff and other key workers across the country.
Scotland’s busiest station joined with other Network Rail stations in lighting up in NHS colours to salute the dedication by staff against the Coronavirus.
The illumination of Glasgow Central comes as people throughout the country once again joined in a mass round of applause at 8 pm on Thursday.
Staff at the station also came together at 8 pm under the station’s iconic clock to join the applause.
The lighting of Glasgow Central Station has been undertaken by the Stage Group, following the clear social distancing messages from government and has not involved any unnecessary travel.
What did the officials say?
Alex Hynes, Managing Director at Scotland’s Railway, said:
“We are delighted to illuminate the iconic Glasgow Central Station as a symbol of public support for the vital and fantastic work of NHS staff who are tackling the coronavirus.
“We are humbled on a daily basis by the bravery and dedication shown by staff in the NHS and we are grateful to all key workers across the country, including those in our railway family, who are playing a massive role in supporting the country at this time.”
