Barrhead's train station is set to reopen this week following a month-long closure to electrify the line.

The station, which provides services to Glasgow, Kilmarnock, Ayr, Carlisle and several more destinations, will reopen on Friday, August 4.

Engineers have been working around the clock to deliver key upgrades to prepare the line for electrification.

The £63million project has included uogrades at four stations - Kennishead, Priesthill & Darnley, Nitshill and Barrhead.

Rail workers have been installing overhead power cables on the line ahead of the introduction of electric services later this year.

Work has also been carried out to remove the footbridge at Nitshill station and replace it with a ramp which will provide step-free access to platform two.

The line has been closed since Saturday, June 24.
