ScotRail has been responsible for boosting and improving rail travel in Scotland. Since the franchise started in 2004, a thousand new jobs have been created.

Steve Montgomery, managing director of ScotRail, said that the franchise was "delighted" to be creating new jobs around Glasgow city centre.

He told the online rail news provider: "In addition, the gates are expected to save us around £1 million-a-year year in lost revenue. This level of reinvestment will add to the future prosperity and growth of the rail industry within Scotland."

They gates will also act as security measures and clamp down on antisocial behaviour.
