Argyle Street train station in GLASGOW is due to remain partially closed until early July.
It came after several passengers were thrown from a malfunctioning escalator, resulting in four people being hospitalized.
Rescue workers rushed to the horrifying incident shortly after the rush at 9 a.m. on May 17.
Witnesses reported that several people fell on top of each other – including OAPs.
A pregnant woman reportedly jumped onto the escalator barrier to avoid the crowd.
Due to ongoing maintenance, ScotRail passengers were forced to climb a hidden stairwell in the subway station’s cleft.
A source said: “This is a nightmare, those stairs will be my death.”
“I hope the escalator will be up and running again soon, I’m not as fit as I used to be.”
Rail bosses have launched an urgent investigation into the incident and hope to minimize the disruption caused.
A Network Rail spokesman said: “Our primary focus remains on ensuring passenger safety.”
