Work began on 12th September 2018 to construct the new Robroyston railway station, which will serve a development of 1,600 homes in the area around the site. The design and build contract which marks the start of work, was awarded to AmcoGiffen. Located between Stepps and Springburn on the Glasgow to Cumbernauld line, the new station will include step free platform access, together with two car parks with a total of 258 spaces, offering a new 'park and ride' facility for people driving into Glasgow along the nearby M80. Clearance works at the site were completed beforehand with ground investigations underway. The station is expected to open in December 2019.
