Com­muters in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang were brac­ing them­selves for the pos­si­bil­ity of travel dis­rup­tion with the Glas­gow 2014 Com­mon­wealth Games.

The two towns were get­ting ready to feel the ef­fects of over a mil­lion visi­tors de­scend­ing on the city for the 11-day event.

Rail trav­ellers were be­ing warned to ex­pect ser­vices to be much busier than usual, with the Ar­gyle Line serv­ing a num­ber of Com­mon­wealth venues.

With the moun­tain bike event at Cathkin Braes, and the ath­let­ics tak­ing place just a few miles away at Ham­p­den, driv­ers were also be­ing urged to plan their jour­neys ahead.
